    FWTS
    *whistles* Awesome stuff that. I just dd'ed the image to an empty CF disk from my camera and booted from my card reader.

    all tests on my Asus M4A78-E:
    Summary: 59 passed, 29 failed, 0 warnings, 2 aborted.
    Some of the FAILs receive a category, low, med, high.

    the reassemly/compil. of DSDT showed the usual nearly 200 errors, most of them
    Object does not exist ^ (LNK_) (with _ being a letter), probably a syntax messup somewhere, just lots of "xy does not exist", had the same problem when I dumped them manually and tried to reassemle them. Wish I had coding skills and could just fix stuff more easily.

    One of the "aborted" tests was
    "Cannot read microcode file /usr/share/misc/intel-microcode.dat"
    Ha. Ha. Why does it expect to load intel microcode on an AMD machine?
    Also the message reads like they had forgotten to include firmware blobs into the disk image file.

    It also produced an interrupt storm on IRQ 19, thus disabling 19 and noting that as critical error, but my Gentoo kernel dmesg doesn't say anything about diabled IRQ 19. *shrugs*

    And "incorrect checksum" as also seen on my manual dumps for the tables. Humm. I don't know much about it but I don't like it. Wrong checksum sounds always nasty.




    How to get this test suite working hopefully quickly
    Code:
    wget  http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/testing/maverick-desktop-i386-fwts.img
    dd if=maverick-desktop-i386-fwts.img of=/dev/sd_
    (replace _ with your letter for the USB media, and double check before you accidentally overwrite your / )
    then fdisk /dev/sd_ and "a" 'make the sd_1 bootable), reboot and select the card reader to boot from.
    wait some time until it finishes loading and gives you a VGA text menu
    select tests, run them, wait, result will automatically be saved to the media (./fwts/today'sdate/somenumber/results.log), shutdown.
    Reboot from HDD, go to Phoronix forums and post results.

    edit:
    I am currently taking data from my VIA C7, the FWTS offers also an xterm implementation (looks like the Gnome one) and other niceness. But apparently there is no acpidump installed. I just used the existing network connection from the box to apt-get install acpidump and then I could dump tables and acpixtract them. So maybe you need to do this for the full results. (I didn't find the tables and compilers in the results log or I was to quick an just missed that part.) I don't know if it is actually written to the USB media for later use, it writes a boot part and an ISO and the ISO is then being mounted as "cdrom" and loaded, but maybe it is writeable and the acpidump will stay for later use on offline machines. Otherwise it is probably possible to copy the binary to a free location on the USB media (I even have a whole partition added to it to save any data or take data with me).

    Interesting. I'm fetching the image now. As soon as I find a free media I'll check it. Maybe it works better on a few machines where LFK v3 crashed during bootup.

    Though you can use the acpidump from the pmtools bundle on every installed Linux and lshw or dmidecode for the board and bios description. Of course if you don't have a Linux installation on the box you need something to boot from. The decompilation and recompilation gives varying results. On my box here I got more than 200 errors probably due to a syntax error in the decompiled version. Grhm. Need coding skills.

    About Test Suite

    LinuxFirmware kit outdated It has old kernel/tools and not maintained anymore I guess it's requires live boot not standalone testing on a host system

    anway I found a new firmware test kit and it's standalone application for now maintained from via ubuntu kernel engineer
    and also it's supports UEFI firmware
    website : http://smackerelofopinion.blogspot.c...pi-health.html
    Launchpad : https://launchpad.net/~firmware-testing-team
    ArchLinux AUR : http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=39604
    installing on ubuntu 11.10 via "sudo apt-get install fwts" that's all

    I did a quick test via fwts(firmware test suite) with Acer Aspire 5315 host system is Ubuntu 11.10 kernel 3.0.0-13.21-generic 3.0.6
    results are : 327 passed, 47 failed, 1 warnings, 0 aborted, 79 skipped, 2 info only.

    I think it's better than other kit database should recreate via this kit

    I included several more results including 2 laptops and few boards along with the most recent kernel patches from Thomas Renninger (Suse) for overriding DSDT and SSDT tables in bios which should really help in debuging issues

    All available here

    http://bigvo.dyndns.org/acpi/

    A bit info about patches themselves in Thomas own words

    "This is a totally different approach, but much more flexible and earlier.
    It provides the possibility to override any ACPI table (including for
    example
    static tables like FADT). You can override up to 10 tables, also
    individual
    SSDTs. Iirc it looks for the table signature on SSDTs and only overrides
    the matching ones. Before one had to glue DSDT and SSDTs together, provide
    acpi_no_auto_dsdt boot param -> it was really ugly up to impossible
    if you wanted to try to override SSDT tables."

    I hope I won't already publish duplicates here.
    So I visited a friend in .nl and had of course nothing better to do than chasing the LFK over his and his girlfriend's laptop.
    Sadly I couldn't test their Lenovo ThinkPad since I had no bootable USB stick with me and there was no (external) opt. drive.
