Yes - the spurious interrupt looks innocuous (I do see it in my normal
debian install as well, just in different places). Other web sites refer
to it saying that you can probably identify the source/resolve it, but
that it probably won't fix your real problem. :-) :-(
AFAIK "eth0: RealTek RTL8139 Fast Ethernet at .............."
BTW: For my personal interest: Do you have a RTL8139
Nope - Sis900 in this box. But it is a "tulip" card, which is
apparently a risk factor for the spurious interrupt messages.
BTW, for others seeing "*Spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ 7" *messages, the
best document I found on them, includinga lot of analysis and a list of
multiple causes/risk factors, was here:
I hit several of those factors (nVidia, an Asus A7V, and a tulip card!)
