    Fatal error on boot up

    I'm trying to eliminate errors in my boot. This is one I thought I had "fixed" by uninstalling all the APM programs I could find. I don't need power management on my desktop! Anyway, here is the error I get
    snip
    Apr 24 08:36:59 Knoppix anacron[3382]: Normal exit (1 job run)
    Apr 24 08:45:13 Knoppix kernel: apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x07 (Driver version 1.16ac)
    Apr 24 08:45:13 Knoppix kernel: apm: overridden by ACPI.
    Apr 24 08:45:13 Knoppix modprobe: FATAL: Error inserting apm (/lib/modules/2.6.7/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/apm.ko): No such device
    Apr 24 08:45:13 Knoppix kernel: mtrr: 0xd8000000,0x8000000 overlaps existing 0xd8000000,0x200000
    Apr 24 08:45:15 Knoppix gconfd (gary-3830): Received signal 15, shutting down cleanly
    Apr 24 08:45:15 Knoppix gconfd (gary-3830): Exiting
    Apr 24 08:45:15 Knoppix init: Switching to runlevel: 6
    snip
    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    kompile a new kernel without APM support, should fix the problem.
    by the way, if you remove power managment you wil not be able to shut your computer of completly without, manually, "pulling the plug".
    it is APM or acpi that lets the OS shut things of automaticy.
    on some systems you can just hold powerbutton presses for 3 - 10s, when the powerof line shows up on screen, to shut down.

    Total system shutdown seems to be working OK at this time, and I've never "Kompiled" anything (not sure I want to ). If I leave everything as is - any harm?

    I also catch a fast flash of a error that does not show up in syslog. It states something like
    modprobe fatal error installing rtc (something something something) file does not exist
    or something like that. Any ideas on this one?

    Thanks
