DELL Precision 7730, fresh Fedora 29 updated to latest version have way too many errors, some of which are looking serious.

Please maybe someone have any help / thoughts / suggestions, before i bug report?

I know that this is pretty new hardware, but before when i've tested with Ubuntu 16 LTS and Manjaro Deepin there was way less.

Here's my machine: https://www.dell.com/en-us/work/shop/...

re the ACPI errors, you could try to update your BIOS firmware. If that doesn’t help, you should report the errors to Dell. Maybe they are listening and will fix the ACPI table.

Re CPU temperature, did you use any tools to display temperatures? Are they really high?

Hi, thx for the answer! BIOS is up to date, DELL doesn't give a crap about it, really bad support on their side. Basically they just said right away "you should contact Ubuntu, we don't support open source OS", which they obviously kinda should, selling 5000$ laptop with this OS :D. What should i say about Fedora)

Nope, temps are ok if you refer to throttle, it's least of my problems and probably expected. I worry about ACPI / pci errors

There is a guy around here that sits in a ACPI committee with several manufacturers. He may contact you and collect more information about the ACPI table errors.

Absolutely! I'm more than glad to help solving this issue and make Linux World better)
