scsi errors, how dangerous could it be?
I have some messages in /var/log/syslog which attracted my attention.
it about scsi errors which I don't fully understand:
Dec 1 07:40:30 ial kernel: scsi0: PCI error Interrupt at seqaddr = 0x9
Dec 1 07:40:30 ial kernel: scsi0: Data Parity Error Detected during address or
write data phase
These message appear time to time. I've tried to google for this
problem, but haven't figured anything, beside that: 1) problem exists :(
2) it also happens to bsd folks.
I'm running fresh woody install, kernel-2.4.18-686, on Asus P2B motherboard
whith integrated scsi controller. Because of this I cannot dedicate a single
IRQ to this controller:
ial:/etc/raddb# cat /proc/interrupts
0: 6548460 XT-PIC timer
1: 2 XT-PIC keyboard
2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
5: 15754026 XT-PIC mxser
8: 3 XT-PIC rtc
10: 13550691 XT-PIC mxser
12: 1901848 XT-PIC eth0
14: 482894 XT-PIC aic7xxx, usb-uhci
15: 17 XT-PIC ide1
Is this a problem? Bios setting disables IRQ for USB, but usb-uhci still uses
it. Could USB be disabled without recompiling kernel?
Motherboard is dual-pentium ready, but only one processor is installed.
Should I use kernel-image-*-smp or not?
Any help is apreciated. Thank you in advance.
