New kernel error message

Do i have to be worried about this:

[john1@manjaro ~]$ journalctl -b -t kernel -g spi
Mai 15 11:10:50 manjaro kernel: spi-nor spi0.0: BFPT parsing failed. Please consider using SPI_NOR_SKIP_SFDP when declaring the flash
Mai 15 11:10:50 manjaro kernel: spi-nor: probe of spi0.0 failed with error -524
[john1@manjaro ~]$

Or is this the answer ( that i don’t understand in detail :frowning: ):

So no reason to be worried ?!

I’m guessing not; but if you want to blacklist the module just in case, this will likely do it…

Assuming the module is spi_intel_pci (substitute as needed):

echo 'blacklist spi_intel_pci' | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-spi_intel_pci.conf

There are no BIOS updates available for this system.

I am pretty confident you would not need spi_intel_pci then. It may even be advisable, per security etc, to keep it disabled unless actively trying to use it for, ex, BIOS updates or augmentation.
