ACPI Error [DSSP] Namespace lookup failure AE_NOT_FOUND on Slackware 14 64 bit


I have Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3V rev 1.1 motherboard with F10 BIOS.
I've got this error on my fresh Slackware 14 x64.

Code:
ACPI Error: [DSSP] Namespace lookup failure, AE_NOT_FOUND (20110623/psargs-359)
ACPI Error: Method parse/execution failed [\_SB_.PCI0.SAT0.SPT1._GTF] (Node ffff88021484f848), AE_NOT_FOUND (20110623/psparse-536)
I've attached full log - look at 4.14s.
It looks like related to SATA/ATA, but I don't have any problems with my drives... (so far)

Looking from some sites, i think it's related to ACPI and it's something that can get fixed by upgrading the firmware for the ROM

is this a server machine or desktop or laptop?

It's my private desktop. By "upgrading the firmware for the ROM" you mean BIOS?
I wonder what this error means, because I don't observe any problems during work.

See:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=491588

I agree with willysr, update the BIOS, but only using the motherboard flash utility (should be in the BIOS settings) or a DOS boot disk.

Hey guys! Mine error is different than this from bugzilla:
Code:
ACPI Error (psargs-0355): [CS03] Namespace lookup failure, AE_NOT_FOUND
ACPI Error (psparse-0537): Method parse/execution failed [\_PR_.CPU0._CST] (Node ffff8101affb0a10), AE_NOT_FOUND
This looks like CPU-related [\_PR_.CPU0._CST], while mine is [\_SB_.PCI0.SAT0.SPT1._GTF] and comes just after SATA/ATA discovery (look at my full log)

Any other ideas?

I think it is still BIOS-related, so if you can update the BIOS, you probably should.

Unless you can pin any failure on this error message, I'd ignore it. That's Matthew Garrett told someone reporting the same message on Fedora, and he tends to know what he's talking about.

It's hard to boot the kernel without at least a few scary looking messages. I think that's why some people are keen to hide them behind a splash screen.

I have started seeing these messages at boot since I installed the 3.7.1 kernel. I consider them harmless. Faulty or incomplete ACPI information from the BIOS is a longstanding issue for Linux, which actually bothers about such things.
Code:
