Hello everyone,

It took a few reboots after installing the latest kernel (.14) to come back up. After it did, I saw this:

WARNING: Kernel Errors Present
nForce2_smbus 0000:00:0a.1: Error probing SMB1.

Bad video card? my Nvidia has been working fine. No on-screen problems/issues noted.

One thought on - What Does This Error Mean?

  • Google searches for that show issues on 2.6.3x kernels in many distros
    (I see it in .31, .32, .33 kernels) including opensuse and ubuntu … they seem to be ignorable from what I am reading. It seems to be a sata issue (with the nforce2 chipset) and not a graphics issue.

    Make sure all your file systems are mountable.
