SuSE 8.1 under generic, acpi enabled kernel
Hello all!

I am running SuSE 8.1 kernel 2.4.19-4GB on a Compaq presario 724 EA.

I want to compile a generic kernel so I can use win4lin on my computer.

I have tried 2.4.19 and 2.4.20 with the acpi patches from and the win4lin patches.

The kernel compiles fine but will not boot correctly. The system hangs at the message:

" PCI: Using pci configuration 1"

After this it should start the acpi (at least that is what happens when I boot with the SuSE kernel).
The kernel does boot when I enter "acpi=off" as a boot parameter so the acpi seems to be the problem.

I have no idea why though and I dunno how to solve this.

I would appreciate your advice.

I'm using slackware now but just in case someone may find this helpful:

the trick to this is to have APIC (yesAPIC and not acpi) disabled in your kernel.

This is not in the SuSE 8.1 kernel by default so when you compile a custom kernel you have to make sure you answer NO there (in processor features).

I remember seeing this on a website somewhere but I can't remember where. It was a good tip anyway!
