I have a strange, intermittant problem.
I often get an error upon boot up, particularly if the computer 'hangs' for more than a few seconds (14 to be exact). I then get an error referring to a DMA_irq_timeout. I don't have the exact error in front of me, but it often happens and I don't know what it is. I also get the error if installing an RPM takes longer than that 14 seconds....it's very irritating.
Tonight I did a dmesg, and I see in the list that there are two PCI devices with the same IRQ, and I"m wondering if that is the issue.
How do I check what device has which IRQ in Linux, and is there a way to manually change the IRQ's for devices?
Thanks for your help.
