Question Slack 9.0 Boot Error Messages


When my new Slack install is booting, I get the following error message many times, over and over (maybe 30 or 40 times):

"insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/char/i810-tco.o.gz"

Each time this message rolls across the screen, it's followed with various short statements such as:

insmod i810-tco failed

no such device

failed

Would any of you happen to know what this means and/or how to fix it?

Thanks a bunch in advance to any that can help me out here...

BTW - I should add that the system boots and seems to run just fine. Still, it appears that something isn't working correctly if I am to believe the boot screen messages.

It means that you don't have an i810 controller chipset. You don't have to worry about it.

attempt for loading it from the user called Excalibur.
