https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=259427 Bug ID: 259427 Summary: Installer throws ACPI AE_AML_PACKAGE_LIMIT errors ad infinitum on HP ProBook 455 G7 Product: Base System Version: 13.0-RELEASE Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Only Me Priority: --- Component: kern Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: email@example.com Created attachment 229011 --> https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=229011&action=edit Output of 'acpidump -dt' Attempting to boot the FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE-p0 installer memory stick on an HP ProBook 455 G7 laptop running the latest firmware/BIOS release (S79 v01.06.00) usually gets to the installer greeting (sometimes reboots in the middle of booting, but works second time around; different bug). However, within several seconds, the following ACP error messages start spamming the screen once every 2-3 seconds: Firmware Error (ACPI): AE_AML_PACKAGE_LIMIT, Index (0x000000005) is beyond end of object (length 0x5) (20201113/exoparg2-569) ACPI Error: Aborting method \_TZ.GTTP due to previous error (AE_AML_PACKAGE_LIMIT) (20201113/psparse-689) ACPI Error: Aborting method \_TZ.CHGZ due to previous error (AE_AML_PACKAGE_LIMIT) (20201113/psparse-689) --- I bought the laptop as a custom build in late 2020, but never really did anything with it because of these ACPi errors on FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE media. Finally got around to trying 13.0-RELEASE media, and getting the same error. Doing a Google search for portions of these error strings returns a lot of similar errors on Linux distributions, but no real resolutions, other than complaining to the manufacturer. I am not going to bother with that because I'd be surprised if they did anything about it. The system came preloaded with a FreeDOS release. I gave a quick test of 14.0-CURRENT cut from 9aa29457d55 (r249761), and that doesn't even boot all the way, crashing into the kernel debugger due to a page fault panic on.....it looks like the audio driver. I am including as attachments the output of 'acpidump -dt | gzip -c9 > foo.asl.gz', just renamed and compressed with XZ. Also attached a screenshot showing how messy the primary console is with these ACPI errors repeating every few seconds. If anyone thinks this is fixable, I can try testing things, but will probably have to wait until a later 14.0-CURRENT snapshot, or someone will need to provide modified copies of 13.0-RELEASE GENERIC kernels that I can kludge onto this thumb drive I am booting off of. Assuming the bug is in the kernel... -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
