Every time i go to a console, but am running autorun in GNOME, and don't
have CD-ROMs in my drives, I get messages like:
ATAPI device hde:
Error: Not ready (Sense key=0x02)
(reserved error code) -- (asc=0x3a, ascq=0x01)
The failed "Read Cd/Dvd Capacity" packet command was:
"25 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00"
I know these are harmless..... but they're EXTREMELY fucking annoying
considering I get one like every two seconds. Not to mention a waste of
kernelspace time. I know this is like wishlist-type stuff, but can't the
kernel detect that there's not a cd in the drive and not create this error?
This also makes syslogs almost completely unusable without grepping out
every line of the error message (which, for some reason, happens to be
substantially different on each of my CDROM drives).
I'm glad you mention this problem here because my CD writer produces the same
error messages making it impossible to toast CDs with cdrecord(1) which worked
fine on a 6.2 machine with kernel upgraded to 2.2.17.
I've got a very old Mitsumi 2x-speed writer connected to IDE and I thought it
was broken now but it's probably one of the 150 additional patches to the kernel
which breaks things... ;-)
You should be able to fix that problem by disabling autorun for that drive?
same problem!! fix this shit please!!
Same problem with PlexWriter 12/10/32
This is a bug in your cdromdrive the kernel logs. 2.2.19pre and later should not
log it excessively,
but removing autorun / magicdev is also a good workaround.
