Azimout's Linux weblog


with 3 comments

ISA is a discontinued system bus architecture replaced today by PCI and its siblings. However, the linux kernel (in Ubuntu Intrepid) still scans for ISA PnP (Plug-and-Pray) devices. To confirm this, run dmesg|grep isapnp, and you should see a message in the kernel log:  “isapnp: No Plug & Play device found”.

To stop this (and slightly speed up boot time), add the noisapnp kernel parameter into the Grub menu.
