I'm running 2.4.18-pre9
I disabled APM, because I ACPI won't work with enabled APM.
Maybe this is normal.

Laptop: Sony vaio pcg-qr10

I boot with frame buffer and vga=normal (fb doesn't work, no tux...)
And now:

tbxface-0099 [01] ACPI_load_tables : ACPI Tables successfully loaded
Parsing Methods :...................
154 Control Methods found and parsed (479 nodes total)
ACPI Namespave successfully loaded at root c02fd500
ACPI: Core Subsystem version [20011018]
evxfevnt-0081 [02] Acpi_enable : Transition to ACPI mode successful
Executing device _INI methods: ............. (13 points)

After that the output stops but the systems starts up, onyl the output...

What is my problem ACPI or Frame Buffer. I've have VESA 2.0 and vga

Do I need special vag= options ?
All options from the manual don't work, lilo takes only the default lilo
options. (my lilo supports hex 0x things if you trust the manpage)

have fun
