MODSIGN: Couldn't get UEFI db list

Asked by corrado venturini on 2017-10-06

at each boot I see 3 messages:
10:39:07 kernel: Couldn't get size: 0x800000000000000e
10:39:07 kernel: MODSIGN: Couldn't get UEFI db list
10:39:07 kernel: Couldn't get size: 0x800000000000000e

the problem is already known in bugzilla:
should i open the problem on launchpad too? Or being a kernel problem i must just sit on the river and wait?

Is this an issue in RedHat?

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #2

This may be related to Kernel v 4.12.* (or 4.13)

also reported on other distros, e.g.

Does it prevent the system from starting?

The issue is on Ubuntu 17.10
corrado@corrado-p5-0930:~$ uname -a
Linux corrado-p5-0930 4.13.0-12-generic #13-Ubuntu SMP Sat Sep 23 03:40:16 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

it does not prevent system from starting

so open bug or sit and wait?

Then I suggest you report a bug. Artful is not ready and not stable

There is already Bug #1719191 created by you.
In my opinion this should be enough.
Maybe a task for the kernel could be added.

a task? you mean a tag?

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #7

What I meant is "Also affects distribution/package" and select Distribution: Ubuntu - Source package name: linux

Can you help with this problem?
