Kernel Errors Present
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:16:21 EST
Description of problem:
root on my FC3x86_64 (running on an AMD64) keeps getting the following
error in a LogWatch email:
WARNING: Kernel Errors Present
powernow-k8: BIOS error: numpst must be ...: 3 Time(s)
vesafb: probe of vesafb0 failed with error -6...: 3 Time(s)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kernel Version 2.6.9-1.667
Every LogWatch email has the above error.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login as root
2. Read mail
3. LogWatch mails contain the above error
I don't see any disastrous effects of the above, but just want to make
sure it's not a tsunami in the hiding:-)
this should be fixed in a subsequent errata kernel.
But what' the effect of the 2 Warnings? How does it affect operation?
You need to ask upstream kernel.org this question. Meanwhile please
test the latest FC3 update kernel.
the powernow error means you won't get variable cpu speed scaling
working. The vesafb error means you won't get a hi resolution
