Why no ACPI?

I'm in the process of getting Fedora Core 1 up and running with Myth. I followed Spinoza's procedure for patching the kernel and upon doing a "make modules_install" depmod says unresolved symbols in snd-mpu401.o:

Obviously this is because in Spinoza's instructions it says to disable ACPI when building the kernel. But the result is that I no longer have sound output. So my question is what problems ACPI causes when it's enabled, if any, and is there any way to enable it and have things work. Or, is there a way to get my sound working with ACPI disabled? I have an ASUS A7N8X-X motherboard, if it matters.

I found these two threads with some more ACPI info. I'll try fooling around with what it says there and see if I get anywhere.

I thought I responded this already..... the gremlins stole my responce..... so if you didn't read it before the gremlins got to it....

Those instructions aren't set in stone. They are just the best I could remember how I got it all to work. ACPI might be able to be enabled for you and work just fine. Why are people so resistant to try things? Just compile up the kernel with ACPI and give it a go. At first I got errors that had the string "acpi" in them, so I figured I'd turn it off and see what happens. I didn't have any insider knownledge into anything, just trying stuff. I actually have since then upgraded to Fedora Core 2 with and threw in a plain vanilla 2.6.7 kernel with the 2.6.6 patchces... works like a charm.

2.4.26 kernel from kernel.org

Enabled ACPI after reading your post.
Never used ACPI before since had no need.
Puts a lotta interesting gunk in dmesg.

Also, I'm compiling the bttv modules separate since I don't like dorking up the kernel tree unless absolutely necessary, like O_STREAMING patch.

All works fine as far as I can tell.

Probably doesn't apply to your setup, though.
