Kernel errors on boot

Hi again,

Back to resolve more errors.
Looking at journalctl I saw below errors:

Oct 19 16:56:20 kernel: ioremap error for 0x4febb000-0x4febc000, requested 0x2, got 0x0
Oct 19 16:56:20 kernel: psmouse serio1: elantech: elantech_send_cmd query 0x02 failed.
Oct 19 16:56:20 kernel: psmouse serio1: elantech: failed to query capabilities.

These errors show up on every boot.
I don't know what these errors mean or to what issues they are related.

I tried switching to linux and linux-lts but errors are still there.
My BIOS is up-to-date.

Thank you in advance.

For the second and third line, it could be something similar to these (long and nested...) threads related to elantech touchpad not correctly recognized.
Just the result of a quick search, though... :wink:

I went through the rabbithole and couldn't fix the errors.

The solution post that the OC posted is deleted and the solution that he mentioned I've tried with no avail:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="i8042.nomux=1 i8042.reset"

Someone in the post was recommending this solution:

Which I'm not sure if I should install those old drivers since these are from 2013.

Also, there is difference in the issue. I see those errors but my touchpad is functioning, even the multi touch is working.

This is an important piece of information.
In my opinion you should disregard those error messages...

Is this error related or different issue? Searched on the internet but just found closed posts due to OC not giving enough information or some that said that issue has been fixed in linux-4.17 kernel.

I'm asking even though touchpad is working now because I had recent about which I asked for help here and didn't learned anything about it so I'm trying to prevent another one by clearing the errors.

That's far beyond my reach, sorry...
I'll leave it to someone else :blush:.
I know I'm a bit too pragmatic: if I don't have specific problems or dumps, I leave minor errors go...

If these supposed "errors" are not shown in the important journalctl errors*, they are not supposed to be solved by normal (and below) users. The best thing you might do is to "report upstream", but still, you should know what, where and how to report.


* Important errors means, using this command:

journalctl -b -p3

Those are important journalctl errors I got from running:

journalctl -b  --no-pager --no-hostname -p3

This is not a proper approach of system's messages.
Messages are not problems, even if there is the word "error", or "failed" in it, rather than an attempt to help the user/admin resolve a problem, in case it exists.

Maybe there is a system malfunction, that you have not discovered yet, or there is none.

When you face a system problem, troubleshoot that problem.
During that troubleshooting, you may consider and add those errros in your toolbox, in case they have something to do.

These messages are coming from the kernel. In order to properly assess their meaning and what we could do about them, we need to be kernel programmers.
As I said already, you could seek for info and knowledge, concerning those errors, addressing them upstream to the kernel dev team. I am sure they could give some answer. This is a good contribution to the Linux kernel, which helps all Linux users.

An error does not need fixing :wink:

I encountered some issues with touchpad where it would lag a bit or completely stop working.
After researching the issue I have found that psmouse kernel module can cause issues on Dell XPS devices and after disabling it I haven't encountered any issues or kernel errors.

For more info and instructions on how to disable it check arch wiki.
