I've a kernel-panic problem (I think) trying to use the liveCD of gNewSense 4.0 for i386. The error is the following:

[8.598401] xhci_queue_intr_tx: 78 callbacks suppressed.

It's showing the same error with different codes (70 for example) as long as my laptop is turned on.

I'll give you some information about my hardware:

I think the problem is with some usb, so more information:

That's all!

  • Just out of curiosity: Any reason why are you using i386 instead of amd64? – user34720 Jun 15 '18 at 17:43
  • Also, have you tried do blacklist your Realtek card reader module? SdReaders, usb ports and wifi modules of that brand are a bit problematic on Linux - linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/… – user34720 Jun 15 '18 at 17:50
  • You're right. I've downloaded the wrong version. – Lucas David Ferrero Jun 15 '18 at 18:00
  • Where do I disable them? I'm running Ubuntu in one of my partitions. Do I need to compile the kernel by myself? – Lucas David Ferrero Jun 15 '18 at 22:49
  • No. You can do it at grub. askubuntu.com/questions/110341/how-to-blacklist-kernel-modules . If you are using a LiveCD, they usually have syslinux as bootloader, and using the modprobe.blacklist=name_of_module should be enough – user34720 Jun 16 '18 at 16:20

This distribution doesn't have proper drivers for 2 USB and network card that comes with my laptop. I've just installed Trisquel and it works perfectly now!
