localhost kernel disabling IRQ #21 message after trying a Maxim mp3 player


I have read the replies to similar questions, but I am still confused. Looking through the kernel configuration all the necessary scsi support and usb support is there (It's a 2.6 kernel). A standard mandriva 2007 installation does this automatically. What is more, other usb stuff is there.

Other standard usb stuff works fine, but this blasted
Maxim mp3 player doesn't.
I did have a usb mass storage camera where I had to
manually add to the "unusual devices" bit of the kernel.

I don't really understand much hardware stuff so
if you can explain what this part of dmesg output means, please do. I have no idea what the "nobody cared bit means, or how to boot with irqpoll if that is the important bit

irq 21: nobody cared (try booting with the "irqpoll" option)

Hi tethysgods, If you're using lilo to boot add an append line to /etc/lilo.conf.
Code:
  image = /boot/kernelimage
  root = /dev/xdXX
  label = distro
  read-only
  append="irqpoll"
Remember to run lilo after the changes.

If you're using grub append in /boot/grub/menu.lst.
Code:
title		distro, kernel 2.6.x
root		(hdX,X)
kernel		/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.x root=/dev/xdXX ro quiet splash irqpoll
initrd		/boot/initrd.img-2.6.x
savedefalt
boot
There are some irq/acpi explanations here. Hope that helps.
Good luck. ;-)

Hi Peacedog

Thnaks ever so much. I have been ill for a while, so I only managed to try it today and it works (at least for the grub boot loader. My daughter will be pleased, but that means she will try and crowd me out even more!
