CCP Crypto

Seen briefly at start of boot:

Code: [Select]
ccp_crypto: Cannot load: there are no available CCPs
Not sure if that affects me or not.

AMD Cryptographic Coprocessor (CCP) crypto API support. Message comes from ccp-crypto-main.c. I have the error too. Doesn't seem to be a deal breaker, and my CPU is "only" six years old.

Yep seems benign for my hardware.

I thought something like this would show up in /var/log/messages, but I have no messages file there.

I'll research to see if I can force the messages logfile..

Hi PDP-8
... I thought something like this would show up in /var/log/messages, but I have no messages file there. ...
Check:
Code: [Select]
dmesg | less -IPage Up/Down to navigate. Use  /  to enter a search term.

Add the  syslog  boot code to get a  messages  file.

Noting that ccp message as a potential patch target, we have a couple similar cosmetic patches already downgrading errors to warnings that we believe were misclassified. Not important enough for this release though.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Roger on that - they were merely cosmetic for me.

I forgot - I'm happy to report that you can also BOOT from mmc / SD-Card devices too.  I haven't tried blowing out my onboard eMMC's, but sd-card boot works just fine for those devices that don't lock out that ability.  Made my early win 8.1 computesticks, and the little hockey-puck sized mini pc very happy.  All running / set for uefi-only btw.  The way I use TC that is not a problem using sd-card for operations.  So again, thanks as that opens up usb ports for other things.
