I included the -b option on journalctl and the same message with 'uinput' 
module not being loaded  and zenstored not found and being rebuiild showed up 
on today's boot.

I installed 4.0.1 in the beginning of the month, rc3 was not available yet, and 
i had an even worse message on journalctl:
Kernel: [drm:intel_cpu_fifo_underrun_irq_handler [i915]] *ERROR* CPU pipe A 
FIFO underrun
After rc3 was made available, i installed it and the message  this CPU pipe 
FIFO underrun was not in the logs anymore. But all the other messages are there 
still.

> In which log
> are you seeing the above error?

This message is from journalctl -ax and persisted after installation at 
everyboot until today for 3 weeks.

Qubes is working fine, but due to the problems i had already with this machine 
before, after several reinstalls, including the worrying journalctl message 
"CPU pipe A FIFO Underrun" mentioned above; since 'uinput' is related to 
keyboard and mouse and it is failing, how can i be sure the version that is 
being loaded is not somehow tainted? Because it fails on first try, right? 
'uinput' deals with keyboard and mouse and although they work fine, they seem 
to be perfect for logging user activity ( keyboard and mouse ).

All the errors are still happening since install. I am sorry to insist, but the 
'uinput' error is the one that worries me more, pardon my ignorance and thus 
the question:
How can i check the signature of the module loaded? Is it possible?

Thank you for your answers awokd,

Some of the issues were solved, below in bold the errors still happening.

Thank you, i removed the alpha_support and with that the gtk errors i was 
having vanished along with the tainted kernel messages.
Also noticed improvement of the speed of the graphics. Things appear to move 
smoother and faster screen. Does that make sense?
The machine is a librem 13v3

i do not know how to solve this, i have seen some answers on github related to 
permissions, are these permissions correct? This is the second reinstal of 
Qubes 4.0.2-preview3
cd /dev
ls -ltra uinput
crw-rw 1 root qubes 10, 223 Dec 22 16:29 uinput

The module seems to be running
lsmod | grep uinput
uinput 20480  0

The status of the module load service is this:

These messages are not so detailed on the causes on which the error ocurred. Is 
there a way to get more info, like turning on a debug mode on boot or something?
Is there a way on qubes to check the signature of uinput module?

I did not install anything on dom0 ( how do i find what was supposedly 
installed, is there a way? )
This are the logs from installing the latest preview3 of 4.0.2. I installed it 
twice, the logs are the same, do you think reinstalling it will solve?

Thank you for your patience. Sorry for so many questions.
Merry Christmas everyone.
