Syllable, AtheOS "I have started to port the linux ACPI subsystem because ACPI is becoming more important now and slowly replaces subsystems like the pci routing table, multi-processor table and apm. The Linux ACPI code is based on the os independent intel reference implementation and so the port has been very easy (and fast to do) so far. Currently the ACPI busmanager contains the basic acpi code (about 90% of the code)."

Member since:

But just look at the list of "fixed" DTST's on the ACPI website. It's not 10 or 20 or so. It's more like 1000 of them. Every model needs a new one. Pathetic.

It is pathetic, but also far away from being Linux's fault. Those DSDT tables do *not* compile cleanly with Intel's IASL compiler.

You should blame the mainboard manufacturers for not being able to come up with a proper DSDT table -- not Linux...
