Does ACPI driver work on your computer / laptop? (Posted by Eugene Gorbunoff)
Post reports via web-form -- http://ecomstation.ru/support.php

The results are published here:
http://ecomstation.ru/projects/acpitools/?action=hardware


1) From:
* Your name, email
* SHOW your name / or HIDE it
* email is always hidden and not recorded for mailing lists
* ACPI version: 3.21, 3.22. Old versions are not supported


2)
If it works fine then post positive short report:
1 or 2 lines of text:
%version% / %model of computer% / %boot with ACPI% / %works with ACPI%

example:
ACPI 3.22.x / Thinkpad T61 / boots fine / works fine, suspend/resume - no, ..


3) If computer hangs with ACPI driver.
and boots fine without ACPI.
ACPI 3.22.x / Thinkpad T430 / doesn't boot / none


What is the reason to collect this short reports?
* We don't have information about current level of ACPI support.
it works fine for many computers but we don't see negative reports.

* The users are lazy to post detailed reports.
To attract attention of users and make them share full reports
it's necessary make many efforts, organize the process.

it's time to change the development approach
(prevent degradation of code, change debug approach, etc)

Homepage of ACPI for eComStation -- http://ecomstation.ru/acpitools

Please check your ticket in the tracker:
* Active tickets -- http://svn.netlabs.org/acpi/report/1
* All tickets, inclusing closed -- http://svn.netlabs.org/acpi/report/6

(visit the tracker periodically during 1-2 weeks)
Post the reply and attach the logs.
(register to access the tracker -- http://ecomstation.ru/projects/acpitools/?action=logs)


Some questions for users:

1) Do you want to monitor temperature of CPU? The widget doesn't show
proper values.. then try to google, find something like (path in ACPI tree):
\\_SB_.PCI0.SBRG.SIOR.HWT1

google -> model of your motherboard + temperature + SBRG or HWT + TEMP or TMP

2) Do you feel problems with NVidia chipset in /SMP /APIC and /!NOD switch? What are the problems?

3) VPIC.SYS testing.
Join the testing if the computer works in PIC mode and doesn't in APIC.
If you have a custom PCI device (DOS drivers only) then prepare Null-modem cable.
If you have simple Core Duo and have troubles with APIC then contact us.


4) Please confirm that Suspend/resume works on 1 CPU, Videodriver should be: Panorama VESA

5) Owners of Acer notebooks: if Wifi adapter is not visible for the system then use PCIWRITE

6) Users with AMD chipset, please try something like this: /SMP /APIC /!NOD /SAP:0x10

7) Do throttling and set of power state work for you? Try W4 kernel if no success with SMP kernel.

8) If the boot is slow , if boot stops at KBDBASE then notify us what is the model of your PC. (SMP APIC mode)

9) If PC hangs when you start ACPIDaemon then inform us.

ACPI testing: slow/unsuccessful boot in SMP APIC (Posted by Eugene Gorbunoff)
The debugging of ACPI continues, it's necessary improve SMP APIC mode support (/SMP /APIC). This is the nominal mode of work for all modern computers (2 or more cores)

The ACPI tracker contains few bug-reports related to slow/failed boot of eComStation in SMP APIC. It's difficult to understand the causes by 1-2 "patients", it's necessary examine 20 patients with similar symptoms.

Use title for your ticket: SMP APIC, %model of notebook%

* Install ACPI 3.14,
* boot without /SMP, grab ACPI log
* boot /PIC /SMP, grab the log
* boot /APIC /SMP, if system hangs then try debug version of ACPI.PSD make photo of screen with digital camera, what do you see on the screen?

How to post tickets to the bug-tracker -- http://ecomstation.ru/projects/acpitools/?action=logs

(use LOGS Collector package to collect all logs)

ACPI testing is safe. If you have bootable JFS and system doesn't boot anymore - check the volume from installation CD1

ACPI 3.10 is available (Posted by Eugene Gorbunoff)
A) Fresh news: We get more reports that eComStation works fine on 8 cores.


B) Why to install ACPI for eComStation?

You should install ACPI for eComStation to:

Common (Notebooks, servers, barebones):
* to initialize PC (the devices are not initialized on boot without ACPI),
* to use multi-core CPU (Core Duo, AMD X2). Especially, if you want run computer in APIC mode,
* device drivers for eComStation depend on ACPI,
* ACPI provides information about the computer to drivers, applications and system information utilities.

Notebook, barebone:
* to manage power management (suspend/resume/poweroff)
* to reduce power consumption

For developer:
* The main purpose of the driver is to provide ACPI interface to applied developers.

New fast VESA video driver for eComStation (Posted by Eugene Gorbunoff)
eCo Software and Mensys BV have reached an agreement to create a generic VESA driver for eComStation.

This driver is called "Panorama VESA", and supports all VESA 2.0 compatible video adapters, which then can be used with the eComStation operating system. Until now some modern chipsetswere not properly supported by the Scitech SNAP driver that is included with eComStation.

The driver is currently under active development. The goal is to achieve maximum performance, support multi-core computers, allow users to work normally with their web-browser, watch DVD and to generally use their PC for everyday work.


How to obtain this driver

An early preview of this driver is available via the eComStation BetaZone to customers who have an active Software Subscription Services.


Requirements

Panorama VESA may be installed over GENGRAD, SDDGRAD or SNAP. To get maximum performance on a Core 2 Duo or AMD X2 based computer, the ACPI subsystem should be installed. ACPI can be obtained seperately from the eComStation BetaZone but is also an install option with eComStation 2.0 (beta 2 and higher).


More information

Homepage of the Panorama video drivers -- http://ecomstation.ru/panorama
Software Subscription Services: http://www.ecomstation.com/subscription/


About Mensys BV

Mensys started out in 1993 with filling the gap that IBM left open with regard to OS/2 software. Developers had great difficulty making their OS/2 product visible on the market. Mensys started to contact OS/2 resellers and distributors worldwide and built an extensive distribution network. Mensys has obtained worldwide distribution rights to eComStation and is actively supporting it's further development.


About eCo Software

eCo Software is a small group of professional developers creating drivers, WPS applications and system utilities for eComStation.

Alternative video drivers for eComStation (Posted by Eugene Gorbunoff)
Do you need new accelerated video drivers for eComStation?

eCo Software expected the problems with video drivers so the specialists started the research of video drivers in 2005. We made good analysis of video adapters market but started the development of drivers for other family of devices. We made many mistakes (not enough resources, very complex goals) but we made an attempt.

We presented Panorama video driver at Warpstock Europe 2005 conference (Dresden, Germany).

Currently we have implemented support for ATI Radeon R100 and R200 families only: ATI Radeon 7000, 7200, 7500, Mobility Radeon 7000, 7500, ATI Radeon 8500, 8500DV, 8500LE, 9000, 9100, 9100IGP, 9200, 9200SE, 9250, Mobility Radeon 9000, 9200, 9250

Panorama R200 offers 2D acceleration, other features.

Let's gather ACPI events (Posted by Eugene Gorbunoff)
When do you need ACPI? It is obligatory for any modern notebook and desktop.
* ACPI intializes your motherboard/notebook properly
* It is useful to configure hardware (via ACPI snooper) or run "obstinate" computer (with broken ACPI DSDT tables)
* It allows startup Multi Processor / Multi Core machine and feel the power of eComStation true multithreading and multitasking
* Provides Power control for notebooks and desktops (battery indicator, throttling control)
* Control of idle state
* Indicators of system state

If you need new utility which allows easily switch power consumption, please join testing (ASUS and Lenovo thinkpads).

T e s t i n g -- If ACPI.PSD is working fine on your notebook and GetNotify.exe and EmbeddedEvent.exe catch events (brightness, LCD on/off, multimedia keys) then
* Download ACPI Manager (http://ecomstation.ru/projects/acpitools/?action=down), Start it, press OK, exit. Find .dat and .dsl files in the directory of ACPI Manager.
* Collect codes (switch to AC, to battery; Brigthness, Volume, LCD On/off, notebook cover close/open, power button) generated by util\GetNotify.exe, util\EmbeddedEvent.exe
