View Full Version : Many Lost Ticks

9th February 2007, 10:08 PM
"Many lost ticks", that's what Dmesg says as an excuse for slowing my clock down :(

Well, it actually says

input: PSX controller as /class/input/input3
Losing some ticks... checking if CPU frequency changed.
warning: many lost ticks.
Your time source seems to be instable or some driver is hogging interupts
rip gc_timer+0x733/0xa5b [gamecon]

bttv0: PLL can sleep, using XTAL (28636363).
time.c: can't update CMOS clock from 1 to 59

It seems that this could be my problem. Any ideas?

Thanks and forgive me for being... well... me :)

PD: Something caught my attention, wtf is doing this:

CPU 0: aperture @ 4002000000 size 32 MB
Aperture too small (32 MB)
No AGP bridge found

at the beginning of the dmesg thingie? I have an Athlon 64 and my nVidia card is in an AGR slot but...

I wonder if something is hogging interrupts. Not sure why it wouldn't find the time to do the clock one though. You may as well post /proc/interrupts

Thanks Jman :)

I rmmod'ed joydev and gamecon and my clock works fine now...

Anyway... my /proc/interrupts.

I hope I can help someone else with this, too bad I can't do anymore zapping from my bed =(
