mandrake 10 - Disabling IRQ #18

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

Just had some fun and games with a mandrake 10 official installation on a new box.

 

P4 HT 2.8

MSI 865 pe neo2 mobo (sata/pata)

3com parallel tasking 10/100 nic

some rubbish ATI video card

legend 333mhz ddr ram

80gb seagate ata100 drive

 

After boot up, which took ages, the /var/log/messages was spewing out loads of repetetive garbage, as shown right down the bottom of this post

Aug 6 07:59:20 new kernel: irq 18: nobody cared!

 

Sometimes pointing the finger at APIC and USB but in fact this issue is directed at the IDE subsystem. to fix it on this board, go into your bios and in the ide configuration select 'legacy mode' instead of 'native mode'. I have no sata drives so i disabled that completely and made things pata only. Then things are all good! I want to let other people know about this because it's a sucky problem and according to google has made people shun mandrake. It's an easy fix so hopefully I have helped somebody else out so they won't end up like me, dicking with it for hours, tearing my hair out.

 

 

 

enjoy mandrake, it's really pretty :)

 

da!!as
