  • Instructions to insert dsdt into kernel source, referencing kernel wiki article when appropriate. T1nk3r3r (talk) 17:41, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Determine whether 'cloning a disk' makes any difference with grossly erroneous ACPI code. T1nk3r3r (talk) 02:02, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
  • According to Patching DSDT in recent Linux kernels without recompiling you don't need to necessarily recompile the kernel if you're using grub2. You can just add the DSDT as an boot option in grub. I don't use grub so I haven't tested this feature. --BertiBoeller (talk) 14:21, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
Sounds better than using an initrd, which poses a security concern. I'm still using grub-legacy, so I cannot currently elaborate on that feature. T1nk3r3r (talk) 15:42, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
Reading that again, the GRUB2 insertion may also have security implications. It would depend on any integrity checks that might be performed each boot. Any such process should be elaborated in the GRUB2 article and linked to from here. T1nk3r3r (talk) 02:02, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
I have tested this and from what I can tell it is working. However for the file 01_acpi to work right on most GRUB2 installations "libdir=${exec_prefix}/lib" should be changed to "libdir=${exec_prefix}/share". Ns89 (talk) 22:29, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
When I get enough spare time, I/you can add a new section concerning code insertion which contains this info. Probably in the next couple days... I'm glad people are finding this article useful! T1nk3r3r (talk) 06:00, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
New sections added. Although on retrospect, I feel that bootloader specific info might be better organized in their respective articles with a link coming from here. In the end, replacing ACPI code is up to the kernel options. At the moment, I cannot verify if these are enabled in stock -ARCH. Feel free to move this info into the article for the time being. Eventually it may get a merge tag. T1nk3r3r (talk) 22:28, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
