I am enclosing two snapshots from /var/log/messages that may help - I am not sure if this is a real problem or just an error that can be ignored. This machine is VERY new.

It's an error that can be ignored.

MokListRT is a list of UEFI keys that the user has imported for Secure Boot purposes.  If you haven't imported any, then it doesn't exist.  Not a big deal.

Comment 2 Ray Holme 2013-06-17 15:22:38 UTC
OK, I just report errors to make sure. Thanks.

Comment 3 Andrew Cowie 2013-08-30 07:07:53 UTC
It may not be a bug, but it is user visable; it's the first thing you see when installing or booting a Fedora system. The fact that it's ignorable isn't obvious ... unless you find this bug report. Is there anything that can be done to silence the error ^W warning?


Comment 4 Ray Holme 2013-08-30 13:16:56 UTC
Well stated Andrew. I totally agree and I suspect it is because this newer machine of mine has a graphics card. I don't see the error on my older box.
