Kernel - error messages... posible bug


My kernel keep giving these error messages. They dont have had any visible effect in my system so far.

I wonder if they are produced by a possible kernel misconfiguration on my part or if they are a 'true' bug.

Distro: Debian 'Sarge'
Kernel: Linux 2.6.5.qucho01 #1 Fri Apr 30 04:20:08 MDT 2004 i686 GNU/Linux
Vid Card: nVidia Gforce4 MMX
Chipset: Intel Pentium 4

I get the one regarding atkbd.c as well. No ill effects have some of it so far so I'm not worried.

don't worry about the tainted kernel message.....
it just means the Nvidia driver is not GPL'd............

the AGP message is telling you the Nvidia driver and your
video card is using the graphics port(AGP) on your Mobo............


atkbd.c.............
this looks like a keyboard config header............
as long as your keyboard and mouse are working with KDE/Gnome
properly....don't worry about it....

Thanks for the answers guys.

This has nothign to do with the price of peanutbutter but... 'mobo' is a 4 letter word !!
Well.. good thing is that it doesn't have an "F" on it
