Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 598252
shpchp loaded although irc:freenode/##kernel says i dont have any hotplug capabilities
Last modified: 2011-06-02 09:03:00 EDT
Description of problem:
I had the idea that i could turn off power to my PCI/PCIe cards in order to save power (my box needs to be on 24/7 for HVAC monitoring and TV recording)...
Then i googled and found that PCI has an optional hot-plug feature that needs special support by the main board...
My main board is an ASROCK ALiveDual-eSATA2...
It seems like the official fedora core 13 kernel loads the kernel module shpchp...
Does that mean, i have an SHPC chip on my main board?
On irc:freenode/##kernel they told me that no mainstream/cheap main board has PCI hotplug capabilities...
Is it a bug, that SHPC is loaded?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. execute # lsmod | grep hp
# lsmod | grep hp
shpchp 28784 0
# lsmod | grep hp | wc -l
What main boards have that PCI/PCIexpress hotplug feature?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
i dont use PCI devices anymore... -arne
