Altough it was 32bit, but still, I find this quite odd.
Now if this really is an error, not just buggy software, is there a way to ignore the error - I mean it boots up eventually anyway, just takes a hell of a lot of time.
Another thing that puzzles me is how am I getting those errors, considering I don't really have 4 ata drives, yet only two - hard disk and dvd rom.
Anyway, this is my dmesg output : Linux version 2.6.24-ARCH ([email protected]) (gcc version 4.3.0 (GCC) ) #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Mar 30 CEST 2008 Command line: root=/dev/sda1 ro vga=791 BIOS-provided physical RAM map: BIOS-e820: 0000000000000000 - 000000000009f000 (usable) BIOS-e820: 000000000009f000 - 00000000000a0000 (reserved) BIOS-e820: 00000000000f0000 - 0000000000100000 (reserved) BIOS-e820: 0000000000100000 - 000000007fee0000 (usable) BIOS-e820: 000000007fee0000 - 000000007fee3000 (ACPI NVS) BIOS-e820: 000000007fee3000 - 000000007fef0000 (ACPI data) BIOS-e820: 000000007fef0000 - 000000007ff00000 (reserved) BIOS-e820: 00000000e0000000 - 00000000f0000000 (reserved) BIOS-e820: 00000000fec00000 - 0000000100000000 (reserved) Entering add_active_range(0, 0, 159) 0 entries of 256 used Entering add_active_range(0, 256, 524000) 1 entries of 256 used end_pfn_map = 1048576 DMI 2.4 present.
