Problem with SuSE 9.0 on ASUS P4S800
I have difficulties with SuSE 9.0 on a P4/2.8 GHz, an ASUS P4S800-board (SIS 648FX-Chipset) and 1 GB RAM.
My installation is SuSE-standard with some additions from the SuSE-CD (c-compiler, kdeedu,..). As windowmanager I use KDE 3.1.4.
The problem is that the computer freezes accidentially during the work and this effect is not reproducable. I already have tried to boot with acpi=off but than the booting stops before reaching level 1.
Does anyone have an idea – would be great!
Thanks in advance,
You may need to append the "noapic" option as well. I've seen this fix freezes on SuSE 9.0 Pro on many machines. I usually add:
append="acpi=off apm=off noapic"
to the boot loader config for SuSE 9.0. Of course, you should shut those daemons off first so that they don't complain about a lack of kernel support:
chkconfig --del acpid
chkconfig --del apmd
Thank you very much, but I already have switched to Mandrake 10. Now everything is working (including acpi) notably because the 2.4 kernel of SuSE doesn´t really support hyperthreading.
