Error messages during boot


Hi,

I'm running Arch Noodle on my IBM R51 laptop now

But I got some error messages that fly by during boot up.

Quote:
Jan 16 13:58:02 lb8 hw_random: RNG not detected
Jan 16 13:58:02 lb8 ipw2200: ipw-2.4-boot.fw load failed: Reason -2
I don't thinks it's causing any (for now at least) fatal errors to my system, but I really want to get rid of it anyway

Sincerely, Jørgen

For the ipw2200 error (your wireless is not working I bet):
http://ipw2200.sourceforge.net/#issues

I guess you have put the firmware(s) in the appropriate directory?

RNG: maybe you have no Random Number Generator and then you need to remove this from your kernel. It won't cause anyharm anyway

Oh yes,

I forgot about the wireless...because i'm using regular lan via RJ45 to connect to the net.

I will just disable it in the BIOS

You think I should do a reinstall with wireless turned off in my BIOS?

Thanks for your help with this

You don't want to use your wireless card?
If yes, then disable it in the BIOS. You could also, during the kernel configuration, remove the support for ipw2200, you will have one line less in your logs (that's optimization lol) and remove the RNG (one less line!)

It worked!

No more errors during boot.

I just disabled wireless in my BIOS.

Thanks for your great help troubleshooting this

Sincerely, Jørgen
