Kernel message log is being flooded [SOLVED]

Post by timmu_india » Wed Nov 17, 2010 6:49 am

Linux Mint 10 (Julia):
The problem is the kernel message log is being flooded with these messages constantly. Also, the system seems unresponsive for about half a second, this happens every 10 or 12 seconds. Please help.

1. Output of 'dmesg':

Re: Kernel message log is being flooded

Post by richyrich » Wed Nov 17, 2010 8:38 am

EDID has to do with your monitor.
The first error states that your Radeon 2100 cannot recogize any monitor, or that it is invalid.
The second line states that your dvd cannot recognize any monitor either.

ps: please do not double post.

You are going to have to tell us what make / model of monitor you are using ?

Have you changed anything in, or added an xorg config file ?

Please post the output from the terminal :

Code: Select all

sudo ddcprobe

Here's the source of your error:

Don't have a clue how to fix it . . . . someone else ?

Previously I was using Debian 5.0.4 with custom compiled Linux kernel 2.6.36. There was no such issue.

The 36 kernel is available here :

http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/ma ... -maverick/

Follow this tutorial :

Caution: You may need to re-install your radeon drivers. . . . good luck.

Glad to here. (Really!) But I would like to know how you solved it. I have a similar problem and may be able to use your experience. I am in initial search mode now but may be posting my stuff shortly.
