When using ubuntu (12.04, both installed and on a live usb) I get a lot of these messages:
pciehp 0000:00:1c.5:pcie04: Card not present on Slot(37) pciehp 0000:00:1c.5:pcie04: Card present on Slot(37)
And with a lot I mean about 20 per second. This has a crippling effect, and I would like to get rid of it :)
The computer is a packard bell easynote BG48-U-100 DC.
I tip I picked up from some fedora/redhat error here was to look at lspci -vnn. I have pasted the part about "00:1c.5" here: http://pastebin.com/0sfsiqW2 For what good it may do, here is the lsmod of my machine: http://pastebin.com/DQZy1kAL
From that first pastebin I think to conclude that it has to do with the module
shpchp, which seems to me (aka: google) to have something to do with ACPI. That's as far as I've come in disecting this.
Can anyone help me along further? What can I do, check etc?
I did see this topic but my intentions are not to surpress the error message: I know how to do this (from that topic ;) ), but I'm looking for a real sollution.
Finding the problem on the internet does suspect me to believe it is neither an ubuntu specific nor a packard-bell specific problem.If you google the problem it seems that is present on several other distribution/hardware combo's as well, and it looks like the advice is to remove one of the drivers? I have no clue as to which driver I should look at and and what would be the effect of just removing it.
I have seen this topic which is old-ish, but describes my problem and is about a similar computer. The solution in this topic was to compile a new kernel using a spanish guide, which seems a bit extreme to me, so I'm kinda hoping for a better solution than that.
edit: I just tested on 12.10 which still has the problem
On the account of surpressing: I can surpress it in the syslog, but the IO still goes on. I do also see the mentions in dmesg, and in one of the consoles. Even a way to surpress all these things would be a help at this point.
Another test also shows that a quick Fedora boot has the same issues on this machine
