Re: Linux 2.6.34 causes system lockup on Compaq Presario 2200 Laptop

I am having trouble getting a trace of this because its down hard to
reproduce. The reason is the lockup happens before I log into the
laptop. i.e. I boot 2.6.34 and if I let the laptop just sit there is
happens. If I log in and start doing work on it, it does not seem to
happen. It's related to using the laptop on battery mode with the
charger removed. I have a 2U appliance setup I am working on today
and this frees up the laptop to try to reproduce this. The flaky
battery power misreporting was in fact accurate. The battery in that
laptop is 6 years old and does have low power. I am certain the
lockup if related though. I will try to reproduce today and setup the
trace to run after boot. I have had it sitting there for an hour and
it has not reoccurred. Let me try through today and if I cannot
reproduce, close the bug.
