Some non-fatal errors


Hello,
I just compiled kernel 2.6.14 and thought I'd solve some non-fatal problems in my dmesg at boot..
Some are simple, but others are quite obscure, help would be greatly appreciated!
Code:
*snip*
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: Symbols match kernel version 2.6.14.
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: No module symbols loaded - kernel modules not enabled.
// Is this a temporary disable? Or is there a kernel option I forgot to config? All module support except 
CONFIG_MODVERSIONS is set.

*snip*
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: Warning only 896MB will be used.
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: Use a HIGHMEM enabled kernel.
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: 896MB LOWMEM available.
// Okay, simple fix, enable highmem

*snip*
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: PCI: Probing PCI hardware
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: PCI: Probing PCI hardware (bus 00)
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: PCI: Using IRQ router default [1106/3227] at 0000:00:11.0
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: PCI: IRQ 0 for device 0000:00:0f.0 doesn't match PIRQ mask - try pci=usepirqmask
// Where is this coming from? Where would I put "pci=usepirqmask"?

*snip*
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: ide: Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; override with idebus=xx
// I'm pretty sure my IDE is >ATA33... Where do I set this? Is it necessary?

*snip*
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: PCI: IRQ 0 for device 0000:00:0f.0 doesn't match PIRQ mask - try pci=usepirqmask
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: PCI: Via IRQ fixup for 0000:00:0f.0, from 255 to 0
// Same as above I guess..

*snip*
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: atkbd.c: Spurious ACK on isa0060/serio0. Some program, like XFree86, might be trying access hardware directly.
// This is so cryptic it's funny :)

*snip*
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: Unable to load NLS charset iso8859-1
Nov  3 22:01:42 athlon64 kernel: NTFS volume version 3.1.
// There a about 6 of these, should be solvable...? No idea how..
Hope someone's willing to help me out here.

Thanks in advance,
Alex

Hi.

The first one looks like you don't have a suitable 'module-init-tools' installed.

The second one - yeah, enable highmem.

Third, I'm not sure about, but you can add the pci=usepirqmask argument to the kernel args (add pci=usepirqmask to the arguments after 'kernel' in grub.conf).

Fourth, don't worry about. You won't be using PIO, so the message doesn't apply.

Fifth, again, not too sure.

Sixth, the kernel has recieved an acknowledgement for a command it didn't issue, so something else is accessing your keyboard - it probably is X

The last one, go into your kernel config and go to:
Filesystems -> Native Language Support -> Base Native Language Support.
Enable NLS ISO 8859-1, recompile and install.

Dave
