This is not to clear but I was in a hurry as it
disappears fairly quickly. Hopefully you will be
able to make sense from the two photos.

This bug seems to be the same as #232897 but with different chipset.

And probably the same as in bug 249469.
Adding the options given in comment #9 seems to have resolved the
problem for me but that doesn't change the fact that something
isn't quite right.

We probably need to go back to disabling MSI by default.
Comment 8 Vaclav "sHINOBI" Misek 2007-08-09 02:00:22 EDT
Just for curiosity. Are these problems due to the wrong MSI implementation in
kernel or due to its implementation in various devices?

MSI was broken in previous kernels but should be fixed now. There are devices
that don't work right and there are also motherboards that are broken (BIOS
updates sometimes fix those.)

Hello,

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/KernelBugTriage

I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.

There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel?

If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.

Cheers
Chris

It has been fixed in a later kernel.
I'm running 2.6.22.1-41.fc7 at the moment.
Thanks

Thanks for the update Ian. I'm adjusting the resolution to let folks know what
worked for them.

Cheers
