Same problem here!

I am migrating my desktop computer from XP to Ubuntu. I have tried 32 and 64 bit versions of 8.04, 8.10, and 9.04 (alfa-4, alfa-5, alfa-6). Right now I am running U9.04 alfa-4 32 bits.

$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.28-9-generic (buildd@palmer) (gcc version 4.3.3 (Ubuntu 4.3.3-5ubuntu2) ) #31-Ubuntu SMP Wed Mar 11 15:43:58 UTC 2009

I have had lots of problems with this computer: PCI cards that cause kernel panic, suspend-resume does not work, fans always at top speed, and usb devices that do not work properly. I have finally fount this thread, and this may be the reason of this nightmare of motherboard.

MoBo: ASUSTeK Computer INC: P5GD1 PRO
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc: 1012.001 (10/13/2005)

Just updated BIOS to latest (non-beta) available, but the problem persists. The latest beta version is from 2006, so they do not provide a BIOS without this problem.

The problem:

$ dmesg | grep 'ACPI Warning'
[ 0.501295] ACPI Warning (tbutils-0217): Incorrect checksum in table [OEMB] - 89, should be 7C [20080926]
[ 1.225647] ACPI Warning (tbutils-0217): Incorrect checksum in table [SSDT] - D7, should be EB [20080926]

Any other Ubuntu user with this motherboard? Is there an easy solution to this?
