fc 0.95 on toshiba satellite 5205-s5151, apci=on



I installed fc 0.94 on a reasonably new toshiba satellite a couple of weeks ago and have been up2dating every now and then since. I was initially frustrated because neither sound, the integrated wireless, or the laptop-specific functions worked. I finally found the comments about apci being off by default and enabled that. Amazing! All of my problems instantly were solved (the wireless configuration tool was excellent). However a few problems remain and some new ones have sprung up.

One of the problems I was seeing before turning apci on was, just before cutting to the graphic part of the boot process, I see some errors about not being able to load the floppy driver. This isn't much of a surprise in itself because the machine doesn't have a floppy drive (although it does seem to have 3 different kinds of smart media slots, none of which I have media for). The standard insmod failure message appears for about half a second and then disappears as X starts. The relevant part of /var/log/messages is below. Any ideas on how to get rid of this?

Once apci was enabled, the ohci driver suddenly started making itself quite noticable. During the boot process (just as X starts) and also when I try to log into KDE (during the session-loading phase) the disk and CPU thrash, and errors like the following get appended to /var/log/messages. (Interestingly, logging into gnome seems to work fine.) Any ideas?

The following line was generated in /etc/modules.conf if that's any help.

alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394


Since apci was enabled, a kernel error occurs sometime just after the network drivers are uninstalled during shutdown. The message scrolls by so fast, I can't actually see what causes it. This isn't logged. If someone can tell me how I can capture the error message, I'll do that and post it.



Sound starting working fine once apci was enabled. However some minor errors are reported to /var/log/messages at both startup and shutdown. Here are the startup messages.

These are almost certainly due to these lines in /etc/modules.conf

alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :


/etc/.aumixrc does appear to have been written correctly the last time I shut down. Should I be worrying about these messages at all? How should I get rid of them.


That's all for now. Thanks in advance for any help.
