Help Needed with Fixing Cause of Boot Error Messages

Using 11.4 I noticed a couple of messages I have not seen before:-

<5>   14.485094] thinkpad_acpi: setting the hotkey mask to 0x00ffffff is likely not the best way to go about it
<5>   14.485098] thinkpad_acpi: please consider using the driver defaults, and refer to up-to-date thinkpad-acpi documentation

My machine is a TP T42 but should I try and od anything about this message or just ignore it?

Can't locate File/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.12.3/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.12.3 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12.3/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12.3 /usr/lib/perl5/5.12.3/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.12.3 .) at /usr/sbin/aa-eventd line 33.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/sbin/aa-eventd line 33.

This seems to report a missing component but beyond that it meens nothing to me. Can anybody please advise?

Many thanks,

This one refers to App Armour. If you haven’t done anything, it is probably
a bug you could report. Or a missing component.

It refers to this code:

use strict;

use Data::Dumper;
use DBI;
use Fcntl;
use File::Temp qw(tempfile);
use Getopt::Long;
use POSIX 'setsid';
use Time::Local;
use File::Tail;            <==========

I have a “/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12.3/File/”, installed from
“perl-File-Tail-0.99.3-146.1.x86_64”. Check you have it.

Cheers / Saludos,

if you are happy with the way the machine is working then never forget
this Rule Number One: If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!

on the other hand, those folks who love the excitement of tracking down
and solving self-induced problems say it a different way: If it ain’t
broke you ain’t trying hard enough!

actually, there are lots of Rule Number Ones:

If you don’t know what it is or what it does do NOT delete it!
Use what works!

openSUSE®, the BMW® of operating systems!

I admit to ignoring all boot messages, as long as the system successfully boots.

Well, okay, I didn’t ignore the one about file system not cleanly unmounted. That did turn out to be a bug that affected the previous shutdown. But I mostly ignore them.

Hi robin,
Many thanks. Didn’t have it installed so installed it and error has gone.
Still not sure of acpi but deprecated I can live with.
Now to return to my wifi problem
Regards and thanks again,
