[Breezy] HP Omnibook XE2 - Cannot boot with acpi

Bug #21707 reported by Tonio on 2005-09-15
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux-source-2.6.15 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


At the reboot after a fresh installation of Ubuntu Breezy Preview Release, on an
HP Omnibook XE2, reboot freeze in "Starting hotplug subsystem".

The safe mode show a problem with acpi. A reboot with "acpi=off noacpi" works.

That's the only problem with this laptop, touchpad, sound, etc... work fine.
