    PCI warning


    I recently upgraded to kernel 2.6.10 in slackware 10.1 using the packages in the testing directory of the II CD.

    I'm receiving a warning about PCI devices during startup. Has anyone else received it??

    What is that all about???

    Without knowing the error we can't do much. I am suspecting you have hardware in your pci or the pci was not enabled during recompile.
    Try again and let us know
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    Sorry!!

    I'm extremely sorry for my foolishness.


    Here is the warning which I get:-

    PCI: Using ACPI for IRQ routing
    *** PCI interrupts are no longer routed automatically. If this
    *** causes a device to stop working,it is probably because the
    *** driver failed to call pci_enable_device(). As a temporary
    *** workaround, the "pci=routeirq" argument restores the old
    *** behavior. If this argument makes the device work again,
    *** please email the output of "lspci" to bjorn.helgaas@hp.com
    *** so I can fix the driver.
    I do not have any PCI device.

    Ignore it, it is a notification of changing the default behaviour of the way irqs are assigned in the latest 2.6.x kernels.
    I\'m so tired .....
