3.11.5 Kernel Compile

Hey all,

I have just compiled the 3.11.5 kernel from kernel.org to fix the ACPI wont shutdown issue, but I have a couple errors in dmesg I am trying to figure out.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

The errors are:


dm_mod: module verification failed: signature and/or required key missing –
tainting kernel


[drm] VGACON disable radeon kernel modesetting.

[drm:radeon_init] *ERROR* No UMS support in radeon module!

  • I believe that you need to use the ATI Radeon beta drivers for the 3.11
    kernel branch, I had to anyways.

  • Humm, since I’m not using a desktop I’m not really wanting to install the full graphics driver.

  • Akemi,

    I installed the ELRepo’s kernel-ml and I don’t get the dm_mod error, so that leans toward it likely being something in my kernel build config…

    I started with that kernel, but was unsure about running it in production, but then again I’m unsure about running the one I built in production – lol.

    I do get the Radeon error though.

    And I noticed something else I get on both kernels, “FATAL: Module scsi_wait_scan not found.”

    Ugh, getting closer to just buying a new MB.

  • Out of curiosity, what shutdown issue? There are several options for shutdown/reboot that can be passed to the standard kernel which fix issues like this. (reboot=pci in grub.conf for example)

  • I tried the reboot=pci, same result …

    The system doesn’t power off, it just sits there. I have to hold the power button in for it to shut down.

    It works in Fedora, Ubuntu, and the new kernel. However, I hate the changes in Fedora (all the init.d stuff changes) and Ubuntu I haven’t used enough to be comfortable to use in a firewall machine.

    I’d be willing to try anything if you have some ideas.

    Here is the shutdown text I receive; this was when I had the acpi debug flags enabled.

  • There are several reboot options you could try. They’re defined in

    so you could have reboot=bios, reboot=triple, reboot=kbd, reboot
