atkbd Slow Boot Times x86_64
Slackware 14 64 bit
Dell M150 Inspiron
Wireless Logitech Keyboard - built in mouse & built in Dell laptop keyboard

This does not impact me at all other than increasing boot times. I did not have this problem with 13.37, or with other distro's - at least that boot with dmesg. The dmesg output is quite redundent, so I will just copy the offending line. btw my system takes about 55 seconds to boot.

atkbd serio0: Use 'setkeycodes e00d <keycode>' to make it known.

this starts at about 10 seconds & goes for 45+. Is there a way to suppress this, or fix? Thanks.

Does the problem go away if you remove the external keyboard?

I'll presume so. I would check if usb is loaded before the keyboard. Slack will probably find the internal one first. I would check the order of booting and make sure it is

usb keyboard
let it find normal keyboard
Some clever work in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and maybe an install command in /etc/modprobe.d

install module_1 module_2
puts in module 2 when the system asks for module 1

The atkdb spam happens with or without it. It doesn't seem to be related.

OK. If it happens at +10 secs, init hasn't started I'm guessing so this is firmly in the kernel. Look up boot parameters and try some of them. I needed to specify pcie_aspm on some things as it makes a decision and everything switches on that.

Thanks for the help. I ended up changing to current, and now the message is suppressed by the kernel, I believe you were right about the boot parameters, unfortunatley is wasn't able to test. Thanks again.
