[SOLVED] CENTOS 6.4 : kernel:Disabling IRQ #16 and then mouse is drunk

Postby avraamjack » 2013/03/11 22:51:56

Hi all,

Just upgraded to 6.4 via yum

Twice I have received this message: kernel:Disabling IRQ #16 , showed up on all open terminals and the syslog

Then the mouse is kind of drunk, moves slowly, and blinks in and out, similar to what you might see with very high cpu load

I guess it will probably be fixed shortly but I thought I would mention it.

PS : This showed up in the syslog

[SOLVED] CENTOS 6.4 : kernel:Disabling IRQ #16 and then mo

Postby AlanBartlett » 2013/03/12 01:26:18

The very first line from your system log, shown above, has a suggestion to try --

Mar 11 18:30:27 jack kernel: irq 16: nobody cared ([color=0000ff]try booting with the "irqpoll" option[/color])

Just edit your /etc/grub.conf file and append irqpoll to the end of the kernel boot line. Assuming it currently reads --

Code: Select all
[i]blah-blah[/i] rhgb quiet

-- then change it to be --

Code: Select all
[i]blah-blah[/i] rhgb quiet [color=0000ff][b]irqpoll[/b][/color]

Now reboot the system and see if that has had any effect.

Hi Alan,

Moving my mouse to the USB 3.0 port on my Vostro 470 has cleared up the issue.

I am guessing others will be affected since the Vostro is an Ivy Bridge recent PC.

Hopefully these posts will help them in that case.
