[Bug 1067456] Re: [drm:intel_dsm_pci_probe] *ERROR* failed to get supported _DSM functions


H. Lekin, as per http://download.lenovo.com/express/ddfm.html an update
is available for your BIOS (1.45). If you update to this, does it change

If not, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

Thank you for your understanding.

  [drm:intel_dsm_pci_probe] *ERROR* failed to get supported _DSM

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Xubuntu 12.04 amd64

  In about 1 of 5 cases, the system hangs for ca. 10 seconds during boot.  Then - as far as I remember - a message about DSM/DRM is displayed.  This 'bug' is not reproducible.  The according syslog line is very likely:
  [drm:intel_dsm_pci_probe] *ERROR* failed to get supported _DSM functions

  The boot screen is always just black, up to the messages which I find
  in boot.log later on. I couldn't change this via Plymouth
  (~>https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Plymouth).  Plymouth doesn't work here as
  described in the article.

  If that hang occurs, I get a crash report for fingerprint-helper
  gui?field.series_filter=precise), but the developer Wolfgang Ullrich
  didn't find anything referring to his software. I usually sent these
  crash reports; a couple of these reports are still available.
