Re: spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7 ??

So I think you are saying it is ok to have the spurious interrupt.. the only issue is hosing the console? I am worried about having the interrupt... I can live w/ hosing the console till that gets fixed.

something about the printer not being requesting any service and

I dont know. Its not a problem because the hardware has a bit to let the
cpu know if in fact an interrupt has happened.


How _it is_ a prlem that it is writen to the system console, thus mesing up
any session that one is using there. This seems to be a basic flaw in
Debian's setup, at this point in time I have 2 (out of 4) Debian machines
that the console is unusable on because if this nonsense. I guess I have to
dig out the O'riely book, and figure out how to edit /etc/syslog.conf to
fix this.
