Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 479586
scp spins up DVD
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:33:56 EST
Description of problem:
When I run scp, there's a delay while DVD spins up.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not every time. Needs certain conditions to happen: clean system after
boot and maybe something else.
Steps to Reproduce:
0. Reboot and log in
1. Put a DVD into drive
2. Wait until desktop mounts it and drive spins down
3. Run ssh to a system that's recognizes us in known_hosts2
4. Observe drive spun up
Delay, drive spins up
No extra delay, no extra disk operations
Ejecting the drive and re-mounting will not make it re-spin. So it's not
just the block caching. That makes it unreproducible.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
