ACPI issues / Boot Hangups in Slackware Distros


Hi! I'm having some problems booting Zenwalk 4.8. During the boot, I get this wonderful hangup:

Code:
pcmcia: parent pci bridge memory window: 0xc8400000 - 0xc84fffff
pcmcia: parent pci bridge memory window: 0x88000000 - 0x8bffffff
cs: IO port probe 0xc00 - 0xcff: clean.
cs: IO port probe 0x820 - 0x8ff: clean.
cs: IO port probe 0x800 - 0x80f:

And it hangs on the last line.

This is what I get from lspci:

I'm running a laptop and I usually don't have problems using acpi on debian based distros... But for some reason, Slackware based distros hate my computer.

Now, what I'd usually do is use acpi=off to boot my computer, but it's certainly a bother not being able to keep track of my battery power and being unable to fully shut down / suspend / etc.

So, any suggestions as to what I could do besides use acpi=off? I'm rather stumped...

If Slackware is causing such problems and Debian doesn't, then it would seem prudent to go with Debian. Is there some reason why not?

Aside from that, I have no suggestions. I must confess my ignorance of what Zenwalk is.

You have a Dell Latitude, or similar, don't you?

Edit out the 0x800-0x80f range in your /etc/pcmcia/config.opts

Linux - Toshiba Laptop Boot Hangup in Slackware Solved !!!

Hi guys,

I've tried with elliott678 solution, and it works for me. Thanks a lot. I just edited my /etc/pcmcia/config.opts file, removing "port 0x800-0x80f" of "include" line, reboot and great!!!, none hangup.

Thanks elliot.

Same problem with Slackware 12 and Toshiba Satellite

I've the same problem. Removing "port 0x800-0x80f" in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts file don't works in Slackware 12. Then I'm using append="acpi=off noapic" in /etc/lilo.conf.
Some suggestion to resolve this problem?
