Re: i386/1403: Intel 440BX2 mobo doesn't power off on halt -p



A further follow-up that seems relevant:

In a private email exchange between Dimitar Stoikov and myself, we determined that we are running different BIOSes with the same motherboard. My BIOS is from Intel and is version P12-0013.

Dimitar is running a Phoenix BIOS dated 09/27/1999.

N.b. that this phenomenon also occurs with Intel BIOS version P08, which was what my mobo came with originally.

Circumstantial evidence therefore suggests that there might a problem in the interaction between OpenBSD's APM implementation and Intel BIOSes.

I hope this is useful.
