ACPI error on boot after updating to 4.9

update
kernel

#1

So I went in and tried to update do 4.9, everything works as of right now, but I don’t know what these errors mean, they appear on boot and I have no clue of what it means. Are they a reason to be worried? When I boot from fallback LTS it doesn’t show. Sorry for the bad image quality, but my phone’s camera struggles with the screen brightness even on its dimmest and all the snaps I tried to shoot ended up like this…
I followed this thread:


It suggested running # pacman -Syu acpi but it didn’t solve the problem and I noticed some weird crashes where the touchpad becomes unresponsive and the terminal doesn’t respond to commands as # reboot and I had to hold the power button to be able to restart the machine.

Here’s an excerpt of dmesg that shows the errors:

Have exactly the same, but system works fine or at least not worse then before ;).

I’m not sure if I understood the message from link. Will it go away when kernel goes beyond rc phase or do I need to update BIOS/UEFI?


#3

Updating BIOS could work.


#4

acpi is a diagnostic tool app.
See: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/acpi/

tl;dr Manufactures made crappy DSDT ACPI tables and in end lots of features did not work at all. Update EFI Firmware/BIOS don’t resolve issues cause basically is just minor fix releases (for ex. Intel MEI Firmware update).

Thought it could be related to the weird crashes I mentioned on the post. I’ve switched back to LTS for now, simply cause I have just this notebook home at this moment and don’t want to get it too unstable…

I have similar but different good stuff on 4.9-rc7. Can confirm.

Yes. Inxi in my profile.
I also have problems with airplane mode enabled by lid switch and rapid on\off after booting into gnome.

In case this is of help:

Strange issues that can be noticed:

  1. nonsense value in xfce power manager for discharge time when laptop is on AC
  2. brightscreen keys can actually set xbacklight to 0 and the screen turns completely dark, on previous kernels there was some lower bound (eg. 0.5)
  3. the sensor applet doesn’t find the temperature sensors at random boots (occurs rarely though)
  4. no functionality at all for the sleep key
