No, but I am searching for it. The motherboard has a Z77 chipset.
I see some errors like:
DMA: Out of SW-IOMMU space for 32768 bytes at device 0000:05:00.0
I don't know the device though.
Finally, this is the problem, the kernel error comes from the driver for
the atheros gbe lan chip.
I see that there is a bug in the atl1c kernel module, introduced with
the 3.8.0 kernel, and exists also in3.8.1.
From what I understood, 3.8.2 will also have this bug.
So, fedora is unusable at least until kernel 3.8.3 gets included, for
systems with atheros chips (i.e. many gigabyte boards).
