Re: ACPI and kernel 2.6.9-1.6.FC2



I have a T40 - when I was running with ACPI on FC2 and FC3. I had
frequent crashes (total machine freeze with wireless indicator flashing)

Since I switched ACPI off, it has become better - I still get occasional
crashes where it logs me out and gets me back to the X11 login screen. I
updated today, there was a new xorg update - it's behaving ok so far.

Best regards,
Chris
