Error Spam AER...id=00e5/ PCIe Bus Error: severity=Corrected

17t-x100 W0Z50AV
Linux

Just bought a 2016 17t-x100 CTO and  went the dual-boot linuxMint MATE 18.1 route.  New laptop, new Linux release - not a match made in heaven.  It has not been easy.  I updated the kernel from 4.4.0-53 to 4.8.0-32 working on a sound issue, and about to try the microcode update.  I get help from their forums that amount to "go read two 700 page books so you can understand this one line of code", that mostly fix the problems but I am knee-deep in books trying to figure out why.

 

Which brings me to the issue I hope you might be able to help me with - about 1000 messages per second are filling my kern.log file.  I'm pretty sure this is keeping something in my computer busy doing this error message, when it could be doing something that is not an error message.

 

here is an example if you would like to help with the issue, or know someone that could.  HP Smart Friend "only supports Windows software", so they declined and I'm back in the library section for computer software engineers.

Hey there! @mintage, Thanks for stopping by the HP Support Forums!

 

I understand that you are getting error Error Spam AER...id=00e5/ PCIe Bus Error on your PC after installing Linux mint.

 

HP does not support dual boot options unless the unit has been shipped with two operating systems.

 

You have to contact Linux support for more assistance.

 

Have a wonderful day ahead! :)

Recommended to me on LinuxMint forum

since pci=nomsi seemed to end the error spam, I then had to turn my attention to forcing log rotation, also accomplished due to the kind assistance at the LinuxMint forum.

 

I had to locate etc/default/grub file in order to:

 

perform following edit:

was:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
is:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pci=nomsi"

sudo grub-update

 

based on the post:

"...In any event you might have run into a kernel bug, According to Sept 2, 2015 discussion

http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/linux/kernel/2250177
if you try pci=nomsi it might eliminate the error spam.

The error reported Nov 11, 2015 discussion

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1521173

is very similar and
suggests adding pci=noaer to your kernel command line."

 

I am using kernel 4.8.0-32 for LinuxMint MATE 18.1 with enabled micro-code 3.20151106.1, on 17t-x100 CTO i3 processor, 8GB RAM.

 

error found when wondering what continuous repeating errors showing up after "dmesg" entered in terminal meant.  That and 16gb of log files in one week.  never would have noticed until HDD space got crowded.

any suggestion would be nice
