    The curious case of double printing on boot F28

    I do not understand why I see double printing.
    It can't be starting two instances of Fedora 28 can it?

    Any ideas?

    Re: The curious case of double printing on boot F28

    Another curiosity.
    I have been aware of the double printing for several weeks. Didn't seem to effect the system any.
    However, curiously , after I posted this question the double printing stopped. At least for the last three reboots. I updated the system and a previous problem has reappeared that hangs the system and kicks me out of my log in.
    Before whenever it would screen blank from time out I would go back in and find all the programs I was running gone. Had to turn off screen saver.
    I checked a few days ago and that problem seemed to be gone. I said okay a bug maybe.
    Now that bug is back with only single printing.
    Spooky, I fear being hacked and exploited.
    I will keep an eye on that print issue. Mind you I didn't change a thing after posting the original post there. I powered down. Came back and booted, single print. Updated and rebooted single prints.
    Also it now seems to get lost during boot now.

    Re: The curious case of double printing on boot F28

    I used to get that on my AMD Athlon powered system but haven't seen it with Intel hardware before. With the AMD system it was caused by i2x_piix4 being loaded before the AMD sp5100_tco module which caused a resource conflict. I fixed this by adding sp5100_tco to the modules list in the mkinitcpio.conf file so it loaded before i2c_piix4, negating the conflict and as a side effect fixing the double printing. Fedora isn't loading everything twice though despite the screwed up terminal output.

    Thanks.
    On other news, I have never been really happy with that mother board. I think I will get a new one and re-build from fresh install. Then see where I am.
    I'm looking at upgrading graphics card too.

    well, you and your camera could be suffering from a mile case of "too much beer".

    that said, I would be hunting for insects and cobwebs inside the electronics....
