Description Aleksey Nogin 2003-01-05 06:27:57 UTC
In Phoebe 8.0.92 (upgraded from 8.0) on Dell Lattitude C640 I did the following
sequence of modprobe's:

modprobe ospm_processor
modprobe ospm_button
modprobe ospm_adapter
modprobe ospm_battery ospm_ac_adapter

The last modprobe resulted in segfault (and, apparently, a kernel Oops). dmesg

During boot:

ACPI: Core Subsystem version [20021205]
    ACPI-0263: *** Info: GPE Block0 defined as GPE0 to GPE15
    ACPI-0263: *** Info: GPE Block1 defined as GPE16 to GPE31
ACPI: Subsystem enabled

During modprobes:

Comment 1 Aleksey Nogin 2003-01-05 06:29:10 UTC
Sorry, forgot the "ospm_system" at the beginning. The full sequence was:

modprobe ospm_system
modprobe ospm_processor
modprobe ospm_button
modprobe ospm_adapter
modprobe ospm_battery ospm_ac_adapter

Comment 2 Aleksey Nogin 2003-01-06 02:07:40 UTC
Just tried "modprobe ospm_battery" straight after booting - same result.
