I have been using FreeBSD for years and with success. I'd like to use
FreeBSD as my main operating system on my new HP Pavilion DV6248EU.
Specs: AMD Turion64 X2 TL-50, Nvidia Geforce Go 6150, 2 GB RAM, 120 GB
HD, DVD RW+DL+LS, LAN/WLAN, 1280x800, etc.
I have tried the AMD64 release of FreeBSD 6.2, but when booting from CD
it crashes almost immediately and I can hardly read whats going on. A
few lines keep scrolling over the screen, which I think is kernel
So I thought I might be lucky with the i386 release of FreeBSD 6.2. It
also crashes on boot but at least I can read whats going on. This is
what I get booting from the installation disc:
/boot/kernel/acpi.ko text=0x4398 data=0x23c0+0x10f0
Loading required module 'pci'
ACPI autoload failed - no such file or directory

I don't think the kernel crash has anything to do with the failing ACPI
autoload. Normally I would enter my BIOS and play with settings for
compatibility. But as you may guess, most settings in this laptop are
If anyone has any ideas or advice in mind, please let me know.
