Bug Description


I saw this message in several other bugs but I am using the newest kernel. Right after upgrade the kernel the boot took several minutes and a message was being repeated several times in screen:
[ 340.489762] pcieport 0000:00:1c.5: AER: Corrected error received: 0000:00:1c.5
[ 340.489775] pcieport 0000:00:1c.5: AER: PCIe Bus Error: severity=Corrected, type=Data Link Layer, (Transmitter ID)
[ 340.489780] pcieport 0000:00:1c.5: AER: device [8086:9d15] error status/mask=00001000/00002000
[ 340.489784] pcieport 0000:00:1c.5: AER: [12] Timeout

The notebook didn't had an issue so far and uptime is 35 minutes. I don't see any issue on performance as of now. All partitions are present.

Before this event of slow down in boot (and notebook frozen for a few seconds duing boot) I was having this same message once or twice and then it was normal boot.

AER, advanced error reporting[1], is generated by hardware and corrected AERs usually doesn't mean any harm because they're just notifications to upper OS that some minor errors like CRC has been corrected automatically by hardware. There is little you can do but to turn off such reporting by append kernel boot parameter "noaer".


Changed in linux (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid

I appreciate the quick answer and will investigate more the boot time. It might be something hidden.
Thank you very much. This can be closed.

Did prevision kernel have normal boot time?

Yes, the previous kernel and others from Ubuntu 19.04 or 19.10 were quick.
