Re: noacpi,acpi=off kernel options

It seems with the newer kernels these options no longer work, or there's
some syntactical change that is killing my kernels on boot. I have one
server here that just refuses to play nice with ACPI. It won't cut the
fan on/off and it fills up my log and eventually the HDD. So normally I
use something like this:

title Fedora (
root (hd0,2)
kernel /vmlinuz- ro
root=UUID=9f669bab-aff8-4855-aa5f-c683bf60744a noacpi,acpi=off
initrd /initrd-

In grub, but for some reason when I boot with this kernel it hang every
time until I remove the noacpi,acpi=off options.

So, what's the correct option(s) for shutting off acpi on boot now?

Try it without the "noacpi," string. Just use "acpi=off".
