Greetings from Dublin.
The 2.6.xx kernel disables ACPI for mobo's manufactured around Y2K and all P3 boards.(across all distro's unless the workaround has been added to lilo and grub)
As with any question it helps If you would give a little info about your system but I'll have a Bash anyways ...RUN the following command and post the output.
- Code: Select all
dmesg | grep 2000
The solution for a grub user is to add acpi=force
to the end of the line starting with kernel
in the /boot/grub/menue.lst. Reboot and run the above command again and it should be sorted.
I am not a Mint user yet, I'm a slacker who thinks wi-fi is the devils work, you cant have all that **** floating round the airwaves infecting the children of Ireland with radiation; it will fry their little minds
that and I like the colou
r that a bunch of zipped cables adds to my installs.
. I just stopped by to have a look at whats new As I have been hearing good things about this project.
And also if I am totally wrong with the above solution Mods please feel free to remove and or edit my answer. I tend to type too much so I should stop here.
