Fedora Dmesg Help


Does Anyone Know What This jibberish is or what I can do to fix it. This is a piece of the output of my dmesg log and it looks like it just keeps repeating over and over again.

The only clues that I could gather from that is that it seems to be having problems with ACPI or APIC and possibly some IRQ issues as a result of that. You could try appending some boot parameters and see if that works. Keep in mind that there are a lot of different boot parameters. I have no clue which ones will work on your system although here are a few you could atleast try....

noapic acpi=off

if that doesn't work then...

noapic acpi=off irqpoll

or

noapic acpi=off irqfixup
