Boot Error -> ipmi:dmi: Invalid offset : 0 (Hibernate issue?)

Post by viniciusov » Thu Sep 20, 2018 11:26 am


I'm having the following error when booting my OS (Linux mint19 - mate):

Code: Select all

ipmi:dmi: Invalid offset : 0
It appears on boot screen (black), before the Mint logo.
I would appreciate if someone has more information about this.
Also, this error is reproducible for me. It appears everytime I hibernate and shut down after that. So I guess it could be something related to hibernation or the grub.

There's a ubuntu user on its forum struggling with this error when he was installing the OS, but I'm having this error during the boot.
Googling, I found some users saying that is related do SSD Trim and you must disable this feature to avoid the error, but I don't have a SSD here (running on my laptop HD).

Can anyone help me with this?

I know this post was from a year ago, but for anyone else looking for a resolve to this issue, it seems to be a kernel issue.

See link below with this problem SOLVED...

Good luck, Snake420.
