I’m intending to work on a Python script that will poll ACPI events, specifically – the lid close event. Of course, flipping lid on and off on my laptop isn’t the best approach, and essentially impossible on desktop setups. At the same time, I do have to use Virtual Box since my host system has different desktop than what I intend to target ( Ubuntu 18.04 with GNOME ). Hence the question – how do I trigger ACPI events in Virtual Box guest OS ?
Trying to install linux desktop with kernel 4, it freezes. The desktop (or sometimes even the installer) responds every 3 seconds, I mean, I can move the mouse for 3 seconds and it freezes, I use it for 3 seconds and it freezes for another 3 seconds. When I do alt+ctrl+F6, on the terminal I see these lines running and not stoping to showing command lines. My notebook is a Acer aspire 3620-32 bits and 2Gb of Ram. Ubuntu 14.04 with kernel version 3.19 runs perfectly, but any ubuntu 14 or 16.04 with kernel 4 and on, do not. So what´s the problem?
This is what terminal shows:
user@pc:~$ [ 3241.500016] ACPI Exception: AE_TIME, Returned by Handler for [EmbeddedControl] (20150619/evregion-297) [3241.500041] ACPI Error: Method parse/execution failed [\_SE_.AMWO.WMCA] Node f44894e0), AE_TIME (20150619/psparse-536) [ 3245.500018] ACPI Exception: AE_TIME, Returned by Handler for [EmbeddedControl] (20150619/evregion-297) [3245.500038] ACPI Error: Method parse/execution failed [\_SE_.AMWO.WMCA] Node f44894e0), AE_TIME (20150619/psparse-536)
… and the lines go on.
I tried to install Lubuntu 18.10 using the various F6 options…nolapci, apci=off etc. w/o success.
I am using a CD to boot.
My system is a Sony Vaio Pentium 4, 2 GB Ram w/ Win XP.
I would like to replace XP with Lubuntu.
ACPI BIOS Error (bug): Could noy resolve [^^^RP09.PEGP], AE_NOT_FOUND (20180531/psparse-330) ACPI Error: Method parse/execution failed _SB.PC10.LPCB.EC._QD1, AE_NOT_FOUND (20180531/psparse-516)
Everytime I try to boot my laptop, these two lines error appear three times and won’t let my laptop boot.
The last thing I was doing was trying to install atk.
LAPTOP: MSI Prestige PS42 Modern 8MO-i5 OS: Ubuntu 18.04
I got two systems with Ubuntu 18.04.1 installed. The two have similar hardware and software configurations but one of them suspends to SBTN press event whereas the other does nothing. I checked gsettings and both have similar org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power configurations. I want to know the complete key bindings associated with SBTN key event.
How and where can I check for these?
Also, how can I remap a keyboard keypress event(say keycode 127 which is pause/break button) to SBTN button/PWBN button?
How can I map system suspend action to keyboard pause/break button?
PS: I’m using acpi_listen for listening to PWBN and SBTN key events and I’m able to see the key presses. For checking for keyboard events I’m using xinput test. Also, I need to get the system back live using the same keypress after suspend action.
I have still problem with fan on my ThinkPad T440s. I spent lot of time with googling and trying diferent configurations but my problem is still persit…
My thinkfan service probably service works:
sudo service thinkfan status ● thinkfan.service - simple and lightweight fan control program Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/thinkfan.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: active (running) since Wed 2019-01-16 17:17:01 CET; 1 day 14h ago Main PID: 31374 (thinkfan) Tasks: 1 (limit: 4915) CGroup: /system.slice/thinkfan.service └─31374 /usr/sbin/thinkfan jan 16 17:17:01 T440s systemd: Starting simple and lightweight fan control program... jan 16 17:17:01 T440s thinkfan: thinkfan 0.9.1 starting... jan 16 17:17:01 T440s thinkfan: Daemon PID: 31374 jan 16 17:17:01 T440s systemd: Started simple and lightweight fan control program.
But after few minutes after restart OS is my fan so loud and run with full speed:
cat /proc/acpi/ibm/fan status: disabled speed: 65535 level: 0 commands: level <level> (<level> is 0-7, auto, disengaged, full-speed) commands: enable, disable commands: watchdog <timeout> (<timeout> is 0 (off), 1-120 (seconds))
Speed of my fan everytime 65535 (without any changes).
Temperatures on my Thinkpad are fine:

But when i try command: dstat –cpufreq –fan –thermal i see “curious” error:

Bios was updated to latest version 2.50.
Please, have you any ideas what i can do? Or is a HW fan problem? I am still linux HW beginner and i don’t knowledge to solve it :/
Thanks for any ideas.
Is there a way to pass through ACPI devices to a KVM guest? I’m trying to create a debugging environment for an ACPI device.
Just did a system update for an 18.04 install.
attempting to reboot gives firmware bug ACPI region does not cover.. and this follows with the PKCS#7 signature not signed.
Had a look similar errors. None seemed to provide the solution for this particular error.
It says things about waiting and time out. Some problems regarding waiting at any rate.
