I have installed arch on 2 different box, a laptop and a PC.
in both cases when it loads the kernel i get a message like:
starting hoplug daemon
unable to load pciehp
missing kernel or user mode drive
the loading hangs for a few seconds and follows normally.
it just bothers me the hanging time so Id like to know how to fix this problem.
You can add
Hotplug won't try to load it so it won't hang anymore.
pciehp is for pci hotpluging (changing cards when comp is running). Most motherboards don't support it.
You can bypass it by adding that module to /etc/hotplug/blacklist.
done, thanks, that was FAST!
I've noticed that in my case this problem happens only when I install Arch with ReiserFS and not when I install it with ext3. Someone knows why this happens if that module doesn't have any relation with filesystem (at least in appearance).
PS: By the way, I noticed that after updating (just after installing) the problem has gone without blacklistin the module.
No - filesystem doesn't have any influence on this(at least in my computer). I tried to install with many different filesystems during the last month and had always the same pciehp bug. Didn't matter ftp or ISO install - was same.
