Description of problem:
I have a Tyan Tiger 1832DL motherboard. It is a P3 850Mhz system. I
modified my grub.conf to set acpi=force so ACPI would work. When I do
this I get an error during startup: insmod error inserting
/lib/modules/2.6.1-1.65/kernel/drivers/acpi/toshbia_acpi.ko :-1 no
such device. I don't have anything toshiba in my system. This error
also happens with redhat 9 and FC1 with ACPI=force. I think the error
is harmless but it is annoying.
This error also occurs on several intel motherboards when acpi=on.
ACPI works on all of the systems. The systems power off after a
shutdown and the power button does a shutdown.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set acpi=force
2. on an acpi motherboard
Actual Results: the error is displayed during boot
Expected Results: no error
This is caused by these lines in the /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
# Initialiaze ACPI bits
if [ -d /proc/acpi ]; then
for module in /lib/modules/$unamer/kernel/drivers/acpi/* ; do
Perhaps this could be turned into a RFE for the toshiba_acpi to not
complain quite so loudly. Either that or to not load the asus_acpi or
toshiba_acpi unless a machine supporting it is detected.
Same error message error with an ECS K7S5A mainboard and an Athlon
2200 XP+ cpu.
