[SOLVED] Arch gives (udev?) problems with HP Compaq nx9010

Hi All,

I have tried to install Archlinux on a HP Compaq nx9010 laptop.
First I had to switch off Acpi and turn on APM because my system shut down all the time because the processor got overheated. After that I could perform a base-installation.

When I boot my system now, after the line "Udev Uevents" I get a message "disabled IRQ #10". My networkcard uses IRQ 10 and I cannot get it to work. The correct module is loaded (natsemi) and all the settings are correct but I can only get eth0 to show up in ifconfig after a "ifconfig eth0 up". But is still does not work then.

When I plug in an usb-stick. I get the message "disabled IRQ #11" and I cannot use the stick either. So posting logs and config files here is a bit difficult.  wink

I tried a few other distros on it that do auto-configuration, like KateOS and PCLinuxOS, and these run just fine on the laptop.

But you might imagine that I want to use Archlinux on the box.

Can someone help me to get Arch to run?

Thanks!

I would start trying the following boot option:

pci=routeirq

With kind regards,

Once upon a time, all the irqs in the system were routed automatically for pci devices. In recent kernels, this should not be necessary, since the drivers should call a function which assigns a proper irq to the device. However, some drivers fails to do this or risk conflicting. Thus, this option restores the old behavior.
