From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020408 Description of problem: Log file get poluted with messages of the form Dec 16 19:22:41 varja kernel: Device not ready. Make sure there is a disc in the drive. Dec 16 19:22:42 varja kernel: sym53c875-1-<4,*>: target did not report SYNC. Dec 16 19:22:43 varja last message repeated 10 times Dec 16 19:22:43 varja kernel: Device not ready. Make sure there is a disc in the drive. and so forth, on an on. The device in question is a Yamaha CDR400t on SCSI bus. It's unclear whetehr the diagnostic comes from the automounter probing the device or whether the SCSI subsystem complaining and logging the complaint. I would assert that having nothing in the drive should not be a problem. The workaround is to always have a cdrom in the drive :-( Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install RH7.3 on machine with CRROM 2. Remove CDROM from drive 3. Inspect logs (or listen to the disk writing the record ever few seconds) Actual Results: Disk clatters, logs fill. Expected Results: The probe for a CRDOM should have been silent with no diagnostic. Additional info:
