Have you got a stuck keyboard key because your dmesg output is just full of
Code: [Select]
[ 7757.995732] atkbd serio0: Use 'setkeycodes e00d <keycode>' to make it known.
[ 7759.089821] atkbd serio0: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0x8d on isa0060/serio0).
and nothing much else.

Are you using a wireless Keyboard ?

If this is a laptop...

Shut it down

Remove the battery

Remove the power lead

Press the power button to discharge any remaining power in the capacitors.

Add the battery back in

Add the power lead back in

power on the PC

Run:
Code: [Select]
dmesg > ~/Desktop/dmesg2.txt
Host that file somewhere and PM me a link.

No its apparantly to with the power charging adapter on the this laptop - I wrote about it here:

Hello - had posted this under a different topic but removed it & started a new one because it is more appropriate.
Managed to scale new heights with boot time - almost 2 mins :o however I believe I know the problem - but rectifying it is a different matter.
Like I said boot time is long & on examining my dmesg i shows numerous instances of:
Code: [Select]
atkbd serio0: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0x8d on isa0060/serio0).
atkbd serio0: Use 'setkeycodes e00d <keycode>' to make it known.

I have googled it & it appears that it is a not uncommon issue with Dell Inspiron 1501s - quite possibly that the BIOS is notifying me that "The AC adapter cannot be identified" (which has just recently started to be displayed on the screen during bootup between the BIOS screen & Grub screen.)

I have tried
Code: [Select]
setkeycodes e00d <keycode>
after reading this article here:
http://www.jveweb.net/en/archives/2011/01/configure-unrecognized-keys-in-linux.html

but the terminal returns:
Code: [Select]
Couldn't get a file descriptor referring to the console

On further research into the Dell Inspiron 1501s Battery/AC charger side of things - specifically theses postings:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/116538/atkbd-c-spamming-the-logs-how-to-get-rid-what-is-this

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=454131

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/549741

I did the following:

    Shut down your laptop.
    Unplug the power cord from your laptop, and unplug it also from the power outlet.
    Remove the battery from your laptop.
    Press and hold the Power button for 2 to 3 seconds.
    Repeat this 2 to 3 times.
    Plug the power cord back into your laptop (while leaving the power cord unplugged from the wall outlet)
    Press and hold the Power button again for 2 to 3 seconds.
    Repeat this 2 to 3 times.
    Reinstall the battery (at least 30 seconds should have gone by since you removed it).
    Plug the power cord into the wall outlet.
    Start your laptop

When I started up the:
Code: [Select]
atkbd serio0: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0x8d on isa0060/serio0).
atkbd serio0: Use 'setkeycodes e00d <keycode>' to make it known.
reports in the dmesg had gone however new reports had appeared  under apparmor entries & the boot time is roughly as long  ???

Here is my latest dmesg:
http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=26165262606183989402

I don't know if there is anyone who can help me with what the apparmor entries mean & if there is anything I can do to reduce the boot time

Thanks  :)

No wireless keyboard - or anything  else for that matter - jut bog standard as it comes.

Do you want me to reboot & sent you one straight after  it?


Just seen your latest post - wildo  ;)
