Xen acpi problem
I'm reading (and setup a test system) with the "The Perfect Xen Setup For Debian And Ubuntu" howto.
I have a AMD Athlon 1GHZ system for this with 384MB Ram.
I needed to enter acpi=force into menu.lst of the host system or else the
system wouldn't poweroff properly.
Now i installed Xen from source the way Falco explained and have again this poweroff problem, the system wont poweroff totally.
I tried acpi=force with Xen but no succes.
I can't find any error messages in /var/log the system just doesnt poweroff properly. Debian closes and the hd's stop spinning then the screen says OS stopped or something nothing else.
Does anybody know how and if this can be solved with Xen?
You said you compiled the Xen kernels from the sources. Did you enable the correct ACPI settings in the kernel configuration? Can you post the ACPI related lines of the kernel configuration file (in /boot)?
hmm good point
Hmm no i did not think of that (shame).
Will do that this week and let you know if that worked out.
did you get this sorted? im having the same issue,
i have acpi compliled into the kernel and here is my acpi config
ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) Support
# CONFIG_ACPI_CUSTOM_DSDT is not set
# CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG is not set
# CONFIG_X86_PM_TIMER is not set
# CONFIG_ACPI_CONTAINER is not set
Did you install all ACPI related packages of your distribution (e.g. acpid on Debian)?
No, i'm sorry didn't have the time yet to look into it.
Have a lot of work right now. When i did figured it out i wil post it here.
it works fine when running under the default Debian kernel.
When i installed Xen i also selected ACPI to compile into the new kernel
How to add acpi into kernel?
Tonight i tried to figure out how to add acpi to the xen kernel for the host system. I never compiled a kernel. How do i add acpi to the xen kernel?
When you ru
I wrote before, i compiled the xen kernel from source, and i did, but it didn't feel like i did it myself, i was following your (falko) instructions.
When i need to change something what is not in the howto, like this acpi, then i'm lost hahah
I tried to solve it, searched on google and google groups and everything read a lot of posts.
I did surfed thru the menuconfig sub menu's so i was kind of warm :)
I used the search option / in the menuconfig.
It did found 2 acpi entries about pnp. I thought that where not the right acpi options. so i didn't select those. I wasn't sure menuconfig is used to add kernel options, now i do :)
After a good night of sleep i started again with "Make menuconfig" and there it is right in front of my nose duh. If i did it right it should now being added to the kernel.
wel its not added to the kernel so i'm stil doing something wrong.
i'm going to install the whole host system again maybe that'l help.
I did a clean sarge install on the host system.
I'm now at the point to configure "make menuconfig" again and again the acpi options are gone so i think its not possible to add acpi modules into xen kernel.
