piix4_smbus controller not enabled ERROR


Recommended Posts

Running CentOS 7 in VMware Workstation on my Windows 7 HP ProBook 6460b


During bootup I am getting the following error and it's driving me nuts.

piix4_smbus 0000:00:007.3: Host SMBus controller not enabled!

I ran lspci -v (after installing it using: yum -y install pciutils)

Bridge: Intel Corporation 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 ACPI (rev 08)

Subsystem : VMware Virtual Machine Chipset

Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 9


Everything I read said just to add blacklist i2c_piix4 to the bottom of the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf which got rid of the message (NOTE: this file didn't exist and only has this one entry)
