    Post Help with fixing System Problems!

    I am wondering if Something is wrong in my system or maybe something should be fixed? I do not like in particular output of this
    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep WW
    Code:
    (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
    [    31.501] (WW) RADEON(0): You need a newer kernel for VBLANKs on CRTC > 1
    [    31.890] (WW) evdev: Logitech USB Receiver: ignoring absolute axes.
    I do not care about logitech receiver but CRTC line kind a distracting

    Also don't like output from

    Code:
    dmesg | grep CPU

    Should something be fixed or everything is normal

    The Kernel version is important here, please provide it...
    terminal:
    Code:
    uname -r
    Also note, the difference between i5 and i7. i5 has 4 CPUs and i7 also, just i7 has multithreading enabled, while i5 does not.

    Sorry Man! My Bad! Forgot... Here it is

    Code:
    2.6.38-11-generic
    Yes, I heard about i5 and i7 differences, but not a lot about technical, architecture, cache and etc stuff... This has some relation to dmesg output? I mean is there some line that is saying that multithreading is disabled ?

    Re: Help with fixing System Problems!

    Basically, your system is working just fine, no need to *fix* anything.

    1. The "You need a newer kernel for VBLANKs on CRTC > 1" issue:
    This is a fall-back thing and is okay (only a warning), see here

    2. The "RCU-based detection of stalled CPUs is disabled." issue:
    This is actually a debug variable, not interesting to common mortals read more here

    3. The "intel ips 0000:00:1f.6: CPU TDP doesn't match expected value (found 25, expected 29)" thingie
    Also consider this normal, its a BIOS thing. BIOS protects you from harming your hardware with over-usage (constant 100% usage), here is a "read more" section
    and a quote from that section:
    Yeah, it's normal, and should probably be downgraded to an
    informational message. It just means your BIOS doesn't want you to
    push the CPU all the way up to its maximum TDP, probably because the
    platform or chassis wasn't designed for that much heat or power
    consumption.
    Don't ask what your company can do for you.
    Ask what you can do for
    your company!

    Re: Help with fixing System Problems!

    Good! I am happy then and just ignoring this! Thx

    Lets go further then...
    • When I close down lid, laptop is not going to sleep...
      Closing a lid -> laptop keeps working
      Then open a lid -> black screen and have to use force power off with holding poweroff button
      Then power on -> going through grub bootloader -> choosing needed kernel(2.6.38 in our case) -> and system boot like I just opened laptop lid (X saved session with all opened windows that were before closing a lid)

    • Fan speed and noise kind of a crazy (Have dual boot and in windows this noise and speed appears normally when using after effects or premier - crazy processor load and memory usage, or long time using 2 screen with HDMI output and watching movies). I already Cleaned fan physically and in windows noise is even lower in some cases. In ubuntu System Monitor and "top" do not show anything connected with crazy CPU load


    What to do or check or install?
    Maybe some more Information?

    Do not like some lines in here also with words ignored, deprecated (assume it is old version of something and not needed on newer) and what gives a negative "colors"

    output from

    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep ACPI
    Code:
    [  4275.948] (II) Open ACPI successful (/var/run/acpid.socket)

    NOTE: I do not know how this one was fixed, but previously it was saying this
    Code:
    (WW) Open ACPI failed (/var/run/acpid.socket) (No such file or directory)
    It is still a mystery for me

    Re: Help with fixing System Problems!

    Okay, here goes the acpid.socket bug is known (launchpad)

    Altho it is an older bug, here is a quote from JayBofMA
    Same issue with Natty and nvidia-current
    and a quote from dino99 (I guess you might have seen him on the forum before ...)
    ok its only a warning but i get it on all the installed distro (lucid, maverick, natty, oneiric) on Asus p5wdh + 8500 gt
    So I guess there is nothing you can do... Again, it is known and should be treated only as a warning...

    PS. Thanks for waiting, I kind of got overwhelmed with work ... And yes, you have to have 50 posts to PM people (spam protection )
    PS2. On such occasions as yours (a question got answered and you add another one) it is better to start a new thread, as it is new and unanswered and will raise peoples attention
    Don't ask what your company can do for you.
    Ask what you can do for
    your company!
