ma3x!tell Ankman about .xinitrc
jmalickima3x: you may have to use XT-PIC interrupt routing, SMP can't work, if you have multi-cores it may not work, irqs may be shared and some drivers may hang
stewAnkman: if an .xinitrc exists when you run startx, the .xinitrc file will be run.. when the .xinitrc script completes, x terminates
rahulAnkman: man xinit ; man xsession
jmalickima3x: etc etc
Ankmanty
rahulAnkman: xinit is much lower-level than xsession
ma3xjmalicki: what's the option that I need to spcify at the boot line? acpi=off or noacpi?
Ankmanalso ma3x
jmalickinoacpi
Ankmani just need to add some key codes
ma3xjmalicki: I already have noapic specified
what's noapic for?
Ankmancalling the Xmodmap

Supaplex!noacpi
jmalicki(they are both real things, and you can sftw to find more)
ma3xmy point is : my computer freezes randomly. am I better with or without acpi, apic?
jmalickithe noapic already loses you a lot of what you'd lose with noacpi
stewma3x: you want acpi=off ; there is no "noacpi" kernel option
jmalickisince its the coordination with the apic that is one of the bigger benefits of acpi
ma3xstew: I have already noapic, should I remove that?
stewma3x: apic != acpi
ma3xstew: I know. but do I need apic or not?
I dunno why is it there? I dont remember specifying it on the boot line
jmalickistew: since when isnt there a noacpi?
stewjmalicki: since forever
ma3x!slap jmalicki :p
