First 500 lines of /var/log/messages from a freshly installed PC
Description of problem:
Freshly installed machine (Intel Eaglelake chipset) with Fedora 10 is throwing continously error messages from the kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kernel 18.104.22.168-117.fc10 i686
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 10
2. See dmesg or /var/log/messages
Kernel errors are flooding var/log/messages. File size after less than one hour of operation is 146 MBytes with 1,7 million lines!
Normal behaviour :-)
Problem disappears when I disable HPET timers in the BIOS. So I strongly suspect that the problem is related to HPET timers.
I will attach the first 500 lines of /var/log/messages to this bug report.
WARN_ON() was replaced by WARN_ON_ONCE() in 22.214.171.124
