Fitzcarraldo wrote:the method of applying them in SL would basically be the same. You quoted two modifications: a change to the local initscript and a change to the kernel boot line. For the latter the easiest thing to do would be to edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg and add acpi_osi=Linux to the end of the kernel boot line. For the former, if your SL installation has a version of OpenRC lower than 0.8.0 then you would have to edit /etc/conf.d/local and add that setpci command to it, whereas if you have OpenRC 0.8.0 or greater installed then /etc/conf.d/local would not be used and instead you would have to create a file /etc/local.d/setpci.start with that setpci command in it and make it executable: chmod +x /etc/local.d/setpci.start.
Fitzcarraldo wrote:You did mention that you didn't have the problem with SL 5.4, so you could install SL 5.4, perform all the above edits (including the creation of /etc/local.d/setpci.start even though it will not be used by SL 5.4 and 5.5 as installed from a LiveDVD (OpenRC version 0.6.8 is on SL 5.5 LiveDVD)) so that when you upgrade using Equo or Sulfur you don't run into the problem.
