Help debugging acpi bug
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 19, 2011
I have an Asus X51R that can't display any graphics beside CLI while on battery power since the system will simply freeze and hard reset is required. But there is one way to get around this and that is adding 'acpi=off' to boot line, 'acpi=ht' doesn't work, only problem with 'acpi=off' is that no battery indicator is shown.
I filed this bug report two years back, last update was May this year.
I guess it isn't easy to debug this problem without an laptop of this model, so I would like to try to debug it but unsure how. I already followed this guide https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingACPI
I recently tested 11.10 with same problem, also tried Xubuntu and Kubuntu with the same issue, Kubuntu didn't even load desktop but guess that because lack of 3D support.
When I tested this command
Did I get this message among others, could the 'null destination' be the problem?

[SOLVED] Help debugging fc13 hang on boot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 27, 2010
I've done a fresh install of fc13 on an old Thinkpad 600X. Was running fine, installed ndiswrapper to get a netgear wifi NIC running, which was great, then downloaded 250+ updates. That was this morning. And then had been running on and off all day today with light duties like browsing and playing streaming radio. All seemed good.
After restarting this afternoon though, it gets to the point where the horizontal animations reach the "Fedora 13" and that all goes white and dims...then that screen hangs. It stays with that white bar across the bottom and "Fedora 13" without launching into the X session with login.
On other screens I have functional text logins but I really would love some advice what to do with one of those in order to see what's broken and potentially fix it.
Any ideas? Thanks
Need help debugging iptables firewall/nat gateway
- date: November 8, 2008
What I need is help developing my troubleshooting process so I can figure this out on my own from now on. I want to learn how to fish rather than have someone hand me one, so to speak. Still, any insights at all would be helpful. ;-)
LAN: eth1 which is connected to a switch via a cross-over cable.
Currently all other machines are plugged into the switch.
Problem: I've a Vista Notebook that I'm trying to share my connection with. I've got DNS which is to say that I can ping the gateway box by it's dns name but no apparent connection besides.
I'm a Software developer but this is my first time with iptables. Seems like a great tool. Would really like to get to know how to use it. I've been operating out of a book so far but it doesn't provide much context for debug output.

Bios Bug help required please!
location: linux.com - date: July 31, 2009
This is my first post and I'll jump right in with a question!
I installed the Ubunti 9.04 (64 bit version) and found that on boot up I got the following error message:
"0.348000 MS Bios bug....8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC"
After this it boots (I hear the boot up music) and end up with a blank screen. Every time. The only option is to crash the system.
So although my Acer has a 64 bit processor I then tried installing the 32 bit version. Same error message as before except it will boot and run normally. Quiet well in fact. Once in a blue moon I do get a blank screen but its very rare. The only thing that doesn't work is I cant seem to set the system clock and have to do it in the bios setup.
I also get this error msg if I boot from the live CD.
I have tried flashing the bios with an update but no difference.
From what I read this problem usually occurs when one a newer motherboard with an older OS not the other way round as in my case.
Any suggestions or perspecti

A possible bug in Foxconn boards BIOS affects Linux ACPI
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 24, 2008
Update: I just got off the phone with Foxconn, they called me from China (1 AM in Indiana, heh) and were asking if I would test an improved version of their BIOS based partially on the modifications I've made to mine, hopefully this all blows over, and regardless of who's fault it is or isn't, we can just go back to using our computers with full functionality.
Thanks to the community for helping me get the message to Foxconn.
Edit: Please tell Foxconn what you think of their behavior:
You need to put in an email, and then it will bring up a form, choose Complain/Suggest.

Edit: Welcome Digg, Reddit, and Slashdot.
Who is Foxconn and why must we get the message to them?
Need help with debugging Dwarf Fortress for Linux keyboard error. Weirdest error yet
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 30, 2013
I'm not looking for an answer (but I'll take one...), but more for just where to start with this one. It's a VERY weird error, and I'm not sure where it's coming from.
Upgraded from 13.04 to 13.10, and now Dwarf Fortress for Linux is experiencing corruption of keyboard input.
As above, I had been running 13.04 for a long while, no errors what so ever in the game. Everything worked great. Now, I'm getting REALLY weird keyboard input corruption. I'll do my best to describe it:
1) Going along, using keyboard as normal to navigate around map, game menus, etc, when suddenly, the game starts acting like a key is being pressed over and over, repeatedly.
2) I'll press that key again, and the repetition stops, but then things get even weirder.
3) Lets say that the left arrow key had been repeating. After stopping it from repeating, I start pressing the up arrow (for instance). After a random number of keyboard events, the game suddenly responds as thoug
[SOLVED] Help With Appending acpi=off to Grub Two
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 12, 2010
I have a Toshiba Satellite L505D-GS6000 it had windows7 on it when I bought it new. Needless to say windows just ran too slow. The only Ubuntu distro that would boot up was Karmic 9.10.
I had to append the phrase acpi=off to get the live ISO to boot I had to type acpi=off after the word splash. I saw it would boot so I installed it as the only OS on this computer.
Now when I boot up I am hitting the power button once and the back on again to get to the grub. I hit the E key use my arrows down to the word splash type acpi=off. Then hit CTRL X to boot up.
How do I put this permanently into Grub2 . I just don't know how? Any input would great thank you!
