What "gk20a 57000000.gpu: platform probe failed" means?


I got the message “gk20a 57000000.gpu: platform probe failed” in the kernel log, how do I troubleshoot it?


This isn’t actually an error. If you have video issues they’ll be from later on in boot…this particular message is expected.

Ha! Great thanks, I’m just hunting down all the dmesg errors.

You’ll find even on desktop Linux that many features are probed or tested for by drivers and init as a way to know what is installed. The “error” message can be misleading since the lack of some hardware or components or configuration is really a “not found” message.

Indeed, thanks.
