Booting a Dell Latitude D620 with LATEST-i386-master.img from a
USB pen drive boots up fine with the selection screen and it
runs till it reaches the following line
isa_probe_children : probing PnP devices
The boot process seems to then hang at this point.
Th system specs are:
Dell Latitude D620
BIOS version A05
Intel Core Duo processor
Dual Core = Yes / 1.66 GHz
DDR2 SDRAM 1280 MB
Intel 945GM Graphics
Intel Pro Wireless
60GB WD HDD
The laptop is more than 3 yrs old and i was hoping that
DragonFlyBSD should boot up fine on this device.
Q: Is there a work around to this issue ?
An additional observation here is:
if the device is booted with 'ACPI disabled' the root mount
fails. This is identical to what i reported for Acer Aspire One.
Q: Can some of the experienced folks share their insight as to
why disabling ACPI causes ffs_mountroot to fail ?
