Recently went from
Centos 6.4 to
Centos 6.5. System is
Dell T410 Tower. Whenever I reboot, system runs through post, passes IPv4 Settings, then announces:
PCIe Training Error: Slot 1
ctrl+alt+del from here - I've received same error (pretty sure every time).
Dell ESM Log shows: General failure after video.
When I hit power button, then power back on, system boots as expected.
Slot 1 has a has the nic card the system is using. (After initial Centos 6.4 install, onboard Broadcom nics were giving me speed & latency issues, tried to resolve with drivers, but had no luck, so I added this other nic card (uses Realtek), which worked fine, no issues, until 6.5 update)
I'm still somewhat of a linux noobie, I wouldn't have thought this would kernel related, because I didn't think kernel started loading till next screen. At this point, it seems like it must be the
2.6.32-431.5.1.el6.x86_64 now because I had same issue with
2.6.32-431.11.2.el6.x86_64 PLUS additional CIFS mount issues, which have gone away with downgrade.
uname -r 2.6.32-431.5.1.el6.x86_64 rpm -qa kernel kernel-2.6.32-358.23.2.el6.x86_64 kernel-2.6.32-431.5.1.el6.x86_64 kernel-2.6.32-358.el6.x86_64 kernel-2.6.32-431.11.2.el6.x86_64 kernel-2.6.32-358.14.1.el6.x86_64
I was thinking about trying to go 1 further back to 6.4 kernel to see if reboot yields same result. I'm not sure what additional issues may arise trying to revert just the kernel to previous release (6.5 -> 6.4) & if there are other reasons I shouldn't. I think there may be an option in BIOS (somewhere) to continue after halt messages...but if I do that, and there is an error, seems like chances are nic won't work correctly.
This server acts as a proxy server to the majority of our desktops on the network, so I only have limited timeframes I can power down and test theories. System seems to be running well now, and as long as I don't manually reboot, seems like we'll be ok in current state, but would like to know what the heck is going on.
