ACPI BIOS Error.

Postby hack3rcon » 2020-06-13 10:37

Hello,
Anytime I boot the system, I see below errors:
Code: Select all

How can I solve it?

Thank you.

I know you are new, and we all started out new ,you can learn a lot by learning to just copy/paste the error messages into a search engine. In this case you will see it is a common error message, also maybe there is no solution. on that I don't know for sure, since it is not my problem I have no reason to read all the results and seem , but any way:

You start by searching for information, based on the error messages, that is what they are for, below is a example:
I copy /paste the error message into a search engine:
Code: Select all
ACPI Error: Method parse/execution failed \_SB.PCI0.SAT0.SPT5._GET, AE_NOT_FOUND (20180810/psparse-516)

First hit, of many : https://forum.manjaro.org/t/acpi-error-dssp-namespace-lookup-failure-ae-not-found-on-4-9-0-1/15474/13
Looks like this is a Bug across all of Linux. Although I have very limited knowledge of how these things work. Still trying to find a kernel parameter that will disable the spewing of this text. If anything you could go post your logs on the bug report for further evidence.

So, after reading the first result, you should also read the others, then if you find any that offer solutions, start trying them , if you do find one that works, of course tell us here as well.
You ask "How can I slove it ?" , but if you can not or do not want to make some effort your self, or just do not find a solution, feel free to ask: "Can some one hold my hand and help me solve this ? " and someone will.
There is no reason you can not solve this yourself, if you put some effort into it, me, I ignore many of the error messages when booting, and as long as everything is working ok, they are irrelevant.
Hint, also sometimes the out put of 'dmesg' is usefull,...you run 'dmesg', and review the errors , if any. SOMETIMES, but not all ways, 'dmesg' reveals the cause of the problem.

The problem is, that Linux kernel devs do know the ACPI specifications, unlike some laptops manufacturers - and unfortunately this is not a joke

Code: Select all
ACPI BIOS Error (bug): Could not resolve [\_SB.PCI0.SAT0.SPT4._GTF.DSSP], AE_NOT_FOUND (20180810/psargs-330)
The error message is clear: Your laptop has a bug in the ACPI BIOS module.
The kernel code contains a lot of workarounds for ACPI bugs, but apparently not for Your BIOS version.

If You don't have any problems with backlight, special functions of the keyboard keys, etc, You can safely ignore this message.
Otherwise You may try adding acpi_osi kernel parameter

Of course You may also report a bug.

I did a search and after it, I posted this thread. I see that some posts said "ignore it" and when I couldn't find any result, then I posted here.

I am sure you did,
I find this interesting, :"Is not a joke " https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/v5.2/firmware-guide/acpi/osi.html posted by LE_746F6D617A7A69 , good read , have you tried adding acpi_osi kernel parameter ? But really, if there is nothing wrong with how the system runs, after it boots , I think you can just ignore it. I gete some error messages during boot , don't remember them off hand, but have been ignoring them for a long time , and no problems. Most all of the search results agree as well, you could submit a bug though. But then again if you look at all the unresolved bug reports, you will see many never get resolved, and are essentially ignored,....so it is kind of a "why bother ? " (at least that is how I feel about it.)

Thank you, but why Linux show errors if they are not important?
To which email address I should report it?

Because they are errors! (Important or not.)

Use "reportbug" :

Next, to start: https://wiki.debian.org/BugReport

And below, very detailed, kind of long...it may seem to complicated ,but actually it is basically simple,but there are a lot of options, etc.....anyway, almost at the end is:
