Upgraded to Fedora 25

Posted on .

Just a quick post to say I upgraded to Fedora 25 a couple of weeks ago. The process was painless and nothing major broke for me. When booting, I get the following error on the console and, I suppose due to it, the bootsplash screen is not used.

ERROR: Unable to locate IOAPIC for GSI 37

If you get a similar error, many web searches return outdated information for messages like that one happening several years ago. The only relevant result I found was a thread in the Arch Linux forums. The error seems completely harmless otherwise and a fix has been committed for Linux 4.9. Kernel 4.9 hasn’t been officially released yet as of the time I’m writing this, and Fedora will typically take some weeks to ship it after it’s released, so in the mean time I’ll have to live with the error message.
