Running FreeBSD on MSI Wind U100

Postby giannidoe » 09 Dec 2008, 05:38

Is anyone else successfully running FreeBSD on a MSI Wind U100 netbook?
Most things seem to work fine for me, I did have to substitute the wifi card for a Gigabyte GN-WI01GT and works perfectly now.
The only thing I'm having problems with is resume from sleep, I tried the acpi mailing list with no luck, gory details here:

If anyone has any ideas how I can get suspend/resume working I'd be grateful.

Start with disabling SMP as this is known not to work with suspend/resume, put kern.smp.disabled=1 in /boot/loader.conf

Thanks, I tried that and it's still not working, but I have just noticed the following errors in the logs:

Is this likely to be the cause of the failure to resume?

how do you installed it in the first place? i downloaded the disc1 iso and copy it to my usb pendrive with unetbootin, but i cant boot because it says it cant found the kernel to boot
