Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-04 20:55:45 UTC
EIP: 0050:[<000000bc>] that's actually a bios that is oopsing can you send me the output of the dmidecode program so I can mark this bios as broken for this feature? (dmidecode is in the kernel-utils rpm package)
Comment 2 Loren A. 2002-11-05 15:32:53 UTC
How do I run the dmidecode.c program? I have made a couple of attempts, and I don't believe I am getting any information that you would want. I would appreciate you help with this, so I can get the quirk ironed out. THANKS!!
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-05 15:35:33 UTC
ehm why do you have a .c one ? (the kernel-utils rpm should provide a binary for it too, and you need to run it as root, eg dmidecode > file and then attach "file" to this bug)
Comment 4 Loren A. 2002-11-05 15:52:33 UTC
I'm getting a bash: dmidecode: command not found could the RPM not have installed correctly?
Comment 6 Loren A. 2002-11-06 15:40:41 UTC
Is there a work around/solution for the oopsing or is it something that will happen forever. The BIOS is currently the most up to date that Hewlett Packard has to offer. I appreciate your help!
Comment 7 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-06 15:43:19 UTC
you can add "apm=off" to the vmlinuz line in /boot/grub/grub.conf
Comment 8 Loren A. 2002-11-07 12:52:42 UTC
THANKS!! That has eliminated the EIP error. The screen now just stops at Power Down. Does that mean my only option at this point is just to push the power button? Thanks for your help!
Comment 9 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-07 12:57:46 UTC
unfortionatly yes. The "oops" you saw was when the kernel was trying to use the APM method to power down the machine. This didn't work (eg it oopsed) so disabling APM means the kernel WON'T try to power it down, which in turn means you have to do it yourself ;(

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem persists. The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
