So I checked my bios and acpi is enabled and supported. When I changed the acpi to force my pc wont boot up and I have to use the default kernel and tell it to use acpi=off in order to get back in. Is my motherboard no longer supported? It worked in 11.0.

Yea all three of my fans are working. Also when I installed opensuse I had to use the default safe kernel or it would not install. I take it this has something to do with that. Never had to do that before???
Nevermind I flashed my bios with the newest version and then set acpi=force. This time it boots with this setting and finally shutdown all the way. Weird because the original bios has acpi support but for whatever reason didnt work.
So since I got it working, now my only question left is, is there anything else I need to change since I flashed my bios? Here is what I am currenlty using for boot.
Now since I enabled acpi I can no longer use amarok??? It works but as soon as I hit play on a mp3 my system gets really choppy, keeps freezing up, and the music keeps cutting out?? Once I close amarok everything goes back to normal. Its like my video card is fighting my sound card and my pc is unusable. All my other apps seem to work just fine. Also noticed the startup and shutdown system tones cut in and out.
The acpi problem being in the bios is not that unusual - a lot of bios implementations are flakey. The Wikipedia has a good article about acpi. Did you ever try using the “firmware kit” package from Intel (it’s in the repo)? My understanding is that it was developed by Intel for checking bios firmware, including acpi. It’s avail on the installation DVD too, as “firmware test”.
As far as the kernel boot arguments, I’m not familiar with all those you’re using. It looks like you may have added some of these as workarounds before you discovered the bios flaw. But since previously the acpi tables were corrupted, unless you’re absolutely certain, I would test removing them.
Ill just leave them the way they are since it now works. Then just do a clean reinstall when 11.2 comes out and see if the boot up settings are different. Ill open a different poat for my sound issues. Thanks.
