Kernal error on Opal

Hi there,

I was looking at the system log in Luci while working on another issue and I noticed the entire log is spammed with these messages, repeating every 9 seconds:

Google has zero results on this error… any ideas?

This is the chip manufacturer’s driver log.
If there are no errors sent during use, you can ignore it.

I know this is an old thread, but I want to add that in my case the error didn’t appear when using 3.215. It started after a couple of days of upgrading to 3.216.

I suppose we can work like that unless there are errors that force us to restart the unit, but if there’s something that can be improved, you as a vendor should try to push for a solution, or at least mask the error if it’s really harmless.

Interesting fact: I didn’t reset the SFT1200, but after like 300KB of such log messages, it didn’t appear anymore, for not apparent reason.

I’m letting the system run, to see what happen next.

Maybe the system is done with calculation now and is pretty sure that’s still 7
:laughing:

Since googling will just lead you to this forum only, I guess it’s an issue inside the GL.iNet customization for OpenWrt.

Actually, according to @yuxin.zou it looks more like a SiFlower’s SDK thing rather than GL.iNet customization wrongdoing, however, since there are several users affected, somebody should look for a more elegant solution than “ignore it”.

I observe the same behaviour with SFT1200 Firmware 4.3.7 rev1.

It is some warning from the wifi driver. The chipset vendor told us that you can omit it.

If you are absolutely certain about that, you should allow an option to mask that warning.
But being more proactive, a warning about what? what triggers that warning sometimes? what environment variables could be tuned in order to improve the working of the SoC?

It is a warning of bandwidth not compatibility.

However we need to rely the SoC vendor to update the driver, decide whether or not to mask that.

I hate meaningless log a lot as well.
