2.4.5-ac13, ASUS A7A266, still "clock timer configuration lost"

Post by Andreas K. Huette » Wed, 13 Jun 2001 00:30:07



Dear experts,

subject says it all: 2.4.5-ac13, ASUS A7A266 board.

Jun 11 17:10:12 qubit kernel: probable hardware bug: clock timer
configuration lost - probably a VIA686a motherboard.
Jun 11 17:10:12 qubit kernel: probable hardware bug: restoring chip
configuration.

every 1-5 minutes. Definitely no VIA chips on board. Do you have any
ideas - is this a false alarm? BTW, once I saw soon after boot:

Jun 11 15:05:18 qubit kernel: spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7.

Looking at time.c this might be related?

more info on request.
best regards, andreas

1. kernel error "probable hardware bug: clock timer configuration lost - probably a VIA686a"

Greetings,

Another message which shows up in my /var/log/message file:
Jul 29 17:28:44 brama kernel: probable hardware bug: clock timer configuration lost - probably a VIA686a.
Jul 29 17:28:44 brama kernel: probable hardware bug: restoring chip configuration.

I was backing up content to tape using the following command when it happened:
tar xvf /dev/nht0 largeamounts of content

Any guidance or remedies in correcting this would be appreciated.

I am running the latest kernel available to RH6.2:
2.2.19-6.2.7smp

The system consists of 2 800 Mhz PIII's, 2 20GB HDs (not running RAID with most
content and user partitions on one disk; /var, /usr on the other) 512MB RAM.
