ACPI related errors shown on Journalctl (Thinkpad x1 Carbon Gen8)

Hello Arch community, i just finished installing Arch Linux and i'm still finishing all my configuration, so when i check errors using "journalctl -p 3 -xb" the following errors are shown on its output

Nov 07 19:44:54 lgtegetege kernel: ACPI Error: Needed [Integer/String/Buffer], found [Package] 0000000023e4017b (20200717/exresop-469)
Nov 07 19:44:54 lgtegetege kernel: ACPI Error: AE_AML_OPERAND_TYPE, While resolving operands for [ToHexString] (20200717/dswexec-431)
Nov 07 19:44:54 lgtegetege kernel: ACPI Error: Aborting method \ADBG due to previous error (AE_AML_OPERAND_TYPE) (20200717/psparse-529)
Nov 07 19:44:54 lgtegetege kernel: ACPI Error: Aborting method \_SB.HIDD._DSM due to previous error (AE_AML_OPERAND_TYPE) (20200717/psparse-529)

these errors are present since the installation, as they were also shown the first time i booted the live usb to install Arch Linux and i think that the application tlp, and the modules acpi_call and tp_smapi are among the things that may be affected by this issue as when i installed those packages, more errors started to appear.

Nov 07 19:44:54 lgtegetege kernel: thinkpad_ec: thinkpad_ec_read_row: failed requesting row: (0x01:0x00)->0xfffffffb
Nov 07 19:44:54 lgtegetege kernel: thinkpad_ec: initial ec test failed
Nov 07 19:44:54 lgtegetege systemd[1]: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.
Nov 07 19:44:54 lgtegetege systemd-modules-load[238]: Failed to insert module 'tp_smapi': No such device or address

the error "failed to start load kernel modules" is also shown everytime i boot, but i dont think its an installation problem as it also started to be shown after i tried to install tlp, acpi_call and tp_smapi
i have already updated my system so i'm running kernel 5.9.6 and the latest version of acpi_call and tp_smapi, i thought that these errors would be removed by updating these softwares but they are still present after i rebooted the system, hope you can help me.

edit: im dualbooting with windows 10, i dont think is relevant but maybe i it is important to mention it as i also have those battery features configured there.
here is the full output of journalctl -b  http://ix.io/2Dtz

Re: ACPI related errors shown on Journalctl (Thinkpad x1 Carbon Gen8)

Could be a low-level issue.

Are you using latest firmware for your thinkpad model ?
Is microcode  updating configured ?

please post full journalctl -b output, see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Li … in_clients for methods to make that easier .

P.S.
Edit your post to use code tags instead of quote tags, check https://bbs.archlinux.org/help.php#bbcode for the diffference.


Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

hello, thanks for your response.
here is the output of journalctl -b http://ix.io/2Dtz i'll also edit the post to add the link in the first message.
yesterday, i used fwupd to check the firmware updates, i have not configured microcode, i will do it now.
also i forgot to mention that i'm dualbooting with windows 10, where i have also the same battery saving features that tlp. tp_smapi and acpi_call give via tlp, i dont know if this is relevant or if it is making conflict but even with this modules not apparently working correctly, my computer only charges until 80% as it is supposed to be (but i dont know if it is doing this correctly)

hope this information is enough to help me to solve all this mess, thank you very much. smile

Re: ACPI related errors shown on Journalctl (Thinkpad x1 Carbon Gen8)

Hello smile
i already configured microcode, and i also uninstalled tp_smapi and acpi_call and i replaced them with the dkms versions, (had to grab tp_smapi-dkms from the aur)
when i installed the packages this "no-depmod -m" were displayed in both installations, to be honest, i dont know what they mean and i would like to be sure that both were installed, and thus working,correctly https://imgur.com/SjrvrUw
after i installed the packages, i rebooted and the second block of errors i posted disappeared completely, even the "failed to start load kernel modules" one that was been displayed also everytime i booted.
however, the first block of acpi errors is still present in my system, i'm kinda lost about how to fix this sad

Re: ACPI related errors shown on Journalctl (Thinkpad x1 Carbon Gen8)

Could you post an uptodate journalctl -b ?

You have disabled fastboot in windows10 ? (see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Du … h_Windows)

Re: ACPI related errors shown on Journalctl (Thinkpad x1 Carbon Gen8)

Hello, sure this is the new link

http://ix.io/2ExE

and obivously (i'm still new here) i didint know about that fastboot thing, i have already disabled it, didnt change the journalctl -p 3 -xb output tho, but now that i gave a little read to that issue i understood that it is not recommended to have it enabled when dualbooting.
i'm still lost about how to solve this

https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=198781

Looks like this is a firmware bug with intel processors that can only be solved in firmware.

The log shows some sof-audio related errors, do you have sof-firmware installed ?

Re: ACPI related errors shown on Journalctl (Thinkpad x1 Carbon Gen8)

Yes i have it installed, there is also a huge mess with the audio in thinkpads x1 carbon 7 and 8 and sof-firmware is needed to solve it, so it was one of the first things i did. How can i solve what is left?

Also about the firmware, i will contact lenovo to look forward to solve this whole thing, thank you smile
