mp_en_viaje: honestly i'd much prefer an acpi-free machine, myself.
asciilifeform: likewise you can't buy a southbridge that dun do the acpi liquishit, cuz again microshit decree.
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-07-06#1832296 << curious what this was about. ... open ssh pipes ? i've yet to see this wonder. dollars to doughnuts it's a shituntu etc box with acpi sleep . ☝︎
asciilifeform: re acpi as instrument of microshitization, observe how ( e.g. https://lwn.net/Articles/574439 ) it is being put in arm boxes, where 0 intel legacycrapola, and spearheaded by... redhat ( the designated microshit for 'linux' )
a111: Logged on 2016-10-31 19:14 asciilifeform: e.g., i still have not forgiven, and do not intend to forgive, the acpi 'soft' power supply switch.
a111: Logged on 2016-01-17 06:23 phf: but you're not supposed to touch those files directly, oh no, they are undocumented and what are you some kind of terrorist. instead there's 20 incompatible power/suspend/battery/sensor/fans/specialkeys control daemons in various states of disarray. "oh, if your fans don't kick in you want termald, or try batterd, which works with new lzmi acpi functions."
a111: Logged on 2015-05-26 23:42 mats: fun fact: there is a particular ACPI table in that you can put anywhere in a low range of memory during boot, and Windows will take the payload data, drop it as an EXE, and run it as SYSTEM.
a111: Logged on 2014-07-22 20:06 Mats_cd03: and, there is an ACPI table exclusively for telling Windows not to apply fixes for buggy hardware because its in a VM, and VMM emulation of the hardware doesn't include said bugs.
mp_en_viaje: and acpi is strictly "make sure nobody can EVER init the iron and get lost EVER, even if they try to"
asciilifeform: ^ know why acpi ? so that chip vendors can keep moarshit under nda etc.
a111: 26 results for "acpi", http://btcbase.org/log-search?q=acpi
asciilifeform: !#s acpi
mp_en_viaje: and at every single fucking twist and turn, too. instead of limiting "firmware" to data, to be executed by bios or gtfo, instead let's "virtual machines" and acpi.
mp_en_viaje: dmesg has some acpi entries, BUT NO VIDEO ANYTHING. fucking lspic has nothing related to vga!!! at.all.
mp_en_viaje: xgamma does nothing. /sys/class/backlight doesn't exist. ye olde grub trick (GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="acpi_backlight=vendor") does nothing.
a111: Logged on 2017-08-04 20:55 asciilifeform: in other noose, asciilifeform took the chance made by the death of ssd in 'zoolag' to attempt netbsd. result : no boot. ( with or without 'no acpi' ) option, hangs at usb init.

trinque: mircea_popescu: aha, and in my head there was this ACPI table you could ask the BIOS for or w/e
asciilifeform: (btw when you throw acpi crapolade out of linuxbios, the binary shrinks 2x)
asciilifeform: it -- notably -- worx on all x86 boxen, unlike the acpi 'soft reset' crapola which -- not so much
asciilifeform: e.g., i still have not forgiven, and do not intend to forgive, the acpi 'soft' power supply switch. ☟︎
asciilifeform: monitor Power,acpi
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the hardware is very literally shit. e.g., ever heard of acpi ?
asciilifeform: and horrors of the cthonian deep, such as real mode bios callouts (as in x11), or acpi crapolade.
asciilifeform: lulzily, i recently tried 'trisquel linux' distro on a thinkpad x60, as mentioned, e.g., here, https://libreboot.org/docs/gnulinux/grub_boot_installer.html - it croaks on boot during acpi init.
asciilifeform: and also they concern acpi, which can be safely ditched if running a sane os

ascii_field: 'In addition to the ACPI feature, remote wake-up (including AMD Magic Packet and Microsoft Wake-up frame) is supported in both ACPI and APM (Advanced Power Management) environments. To support WOL from a deep power down state (e.g., D3cold, i.e., main power is off and only auxiliary exists), the auxiliary power source must be able to provide the needed power... ...The RTL8111E supports Protocol offload. It offloads some

assbot: Logged on 18-03-2015 19:38:35; mats: another fun fact: you can physically damage XP installations via ACPI parsing and NtSystemDebugControl, entirely in usermode
decimation: mats: acpi is an abomination

decimation: asciilifeform: on another project I've been chasing an oomkill that happens ... when acpi is turned on

assbot: LKML: Lv Zheng: [PATCH v2 7/7] ACPI: Add support to force header inclusion rules for <acpi/acpi.h>.
