new kernel causes boor problems
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:15:20 EST
Description of problem:Booting with the new kernel causes repeating
statements in the messages file that eats up log space. I don't know
why these repeating messages appear, what causes them, or how to get
rid of them. But they didn't occur until this latest kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load new kernel
Repeating messages occur
No repeating messages
These messages seem to refer to device sda. To the best of my
knowledge, I don't even have an sda, at least no scsi devices on this
I will be attaching 2 messages files. One from 2.6.10-1.737 (with
repeating statements) and one from 2.6.9-1.724 (which I have reverted

looks like its polling your card reader. Does it stop if you disable
Good news / bad news.
Indeed, when I disabled the card reader it booted without any of those
statements. And when I then plugged it in while tailing messages, the
statements started up again and quit when I unplugged it.
Unfortunately, I need the card reader. So I suppose I'll have to wait
for the next kernel release, no?
Also, I noticed that my lm_sensors is now not working with this new
does it stop if you do
service stop haldaemon
Yes. But here's another "unfortunately..."
While that seems to have fixed those spurious statements in the
messages log, lm_sensors still does not work and my card reader
doesn't work either. At least not automatically like I'm used to. I
haven't tried anything manual. (It used to ask if I wanted to
transfer photos when plugging in the mem card.)
I just tried the latest 741 kernel and it has exactly the same issues
as 737 - card reader causes startup problems if plugged in (or doesn't
work after booting if plugged in later) and lm_sensors doesn't work.
I just plugged in the latest kernel from
http://people.redhat.com/davej/kernels/Fedora/FC3/. It's the
I've got good news and bad. First, my USB card reader once again
works! Yay! First one since 2.6.9-1.724 that's worked!
Now the bad news. My lm_sensors still doesn't work. (Like the card
reader, it hasn't worked with any kernel since 2.6.9-1.724). Do you
want me file a different bug for that one and close this one out?
Re: lm_sensors not working with 2.6.10 kernels:
After reading about it in a previous post in Fedora-list, I got
lm_sensors to work again by merely adding the line:
to my rc.local file prior to the other lm_sensor modprobe lines.
It's not at all clear to me why this step is necessary now since it
wasn't with any of my 2.6.9 kernels nor is it clear why or how
i2c_viapro is being added in the first place.
C'est la vie. Lm_sensors is now working again for me.
