this fills up at a great rate of knots.....currently at 14.4 GB.....two days ago it was empty.

 

(I deleted the entire log because I was running out of space on the ssd)

 

Why is this happening ??

out of disk space...need to park this here sio i dont lose it

 

http://jhshi.me/2015/11/14/acpi-error-method-parseexecution-failed-_gpe_l6f/index.html


I recently built a PC based on Intel's latest Skylake CPU (i5-6500) and Z170 chipset (AsRock Z170 Pro4), and installed Ubuntu 15.10 on it. After setting up, however, I found that the kernel message buffer was flooded with this error message. This is how I fixed it.
TL;DR

This is how to fix it: add this line to /etc/rc.local:

echo "disable" > /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe6F

Then reboot your PC, the error message should be gone. If you want to learn more about how I came up with fix, keep reading.

Here's someone else with the same problem and solution, and an explanation as to why this is happening:

Fixed.

 

 

found at this page :  http://jhshi.me/2015/11/14/acpi-error-method-parseexecution-failed-_gpe_l6f/index.html

 

 

echo "disable" > /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe6F

...added this line to /etc/rc.local 

 

and then Reboot.

 

I also deleted the kern.log, the kern.log.1, and the syslog and syslog.1  ......in

/var/log

Why is this happening ?/


According to the info I posted a link to in post #3, it's because your hardware is newer than the software you're running on it.

Pleased to hear you got it fixed. :)

The OS is a brand new install of Linux Mint 18, Sarah, Cinnamon

 

The motherboard is a B150M Pro4....ASRock (approx 9/2015) with a Intel Pentium G4400

 

I am sooo relieved my GB usage is back to 68 out of 112 (instead of 112/112) !!

This is a good example of the time it takes Linux software developers to catch up with releases of new hardware. No doubt this will be fixed with some future update, but people who use the latest hardware like yourself have to DIY. :)
