pm-timer bug

leave a comment »

we got this sbc at work: ampro readyboard 800

we’re running it with a 4GB compact flash, so i had to purge all the packages we don’t need

then i took a look at the kernel log to look for messages. one that was unusual was:

* This chipset may have PM-Timer Bug.  Due to workarounds for a bug,
* this time source is slow. If you are sure your timer does not have
* this bug, please use "pmtmr_good" to disable the workaround

it is discussed here. the sbc has the 855GM northbridge and ICH4 southbridge…
