own kernel version:

[klevstul@silentGamerMjr ~]$ uname -a
Linux silentGamerMjr 4.14.67-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Aug 24 16:33:26 UTC 2018 x86_64 GNU/Linux

this is a well know problem, as seen on

i have read posts like:

i found inks to two kernel bugs that are resolved:

as well as this:

status?

sorry, but i am struggeling understanding the status of this problem/bug. as far as what i have read these errors can simply be ignored, so it should not be a problem getting these errors. it seems that all related issues (kernal+acpi) are solved, however, no new kernel versions has been rolled out with the implemented fixes. so i should simply wait until a new kernel version arrives.

is that understanding correct?

This topic has already been discussed numerous times. Please use the forum search before posting about common issues.

In general, these errors are almost always harmless. However, if they annoy you, you can hide them by adding one simple boot parameter:

thanks for getting back to me and for the link to suppress the errors. yes, i did see numerous posts on this issue. it is still unclear to me if:

  • all related kernel and acpi bugs are fixed, deployed and will be rolled out in next kernel release?

however, since these errors can simply be ignored it doesn't matter much. as well, it's not a direct manjaro related question so asking that question could be done in an other fora.

I am not very knowledgeable about this issue; I don't really understand ACPI at all. Maybe @jonathon can explain this with some authority.

But to the best of my understanding, most ACPI spam is not really a bug at all.

So unless the upstream developers change how ACPI errors are reported during boot (which they recently decided NOT to do), I don't think they are going to go away anytime soon.

once again, thanks a lot for useful links. i am new to linux so i'm lacking a deeper understanding of many things. i really appreciate this very helpful manjaro forum.
