Description Joe Acosta 2001-07-13 16:12:51 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (Win98; U)

Description of problem:
It seems that if I go into the gnome control center and set teh cdrom properties to automount audio cdroms then I get all sorts of VFSD errors in 
dmesg.  Something to the effect of "VFS error mounting drive ide1(22,0)".

I shut the auto mount stuff off and it goes away.

I never tried this before in previous version of RH.

This happens with default RH kernel as well as 2.4.5 (untested elsewhere).

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to the gnome control center adn turn on automount cdroms under the cdrom properties.
2. I think it is the audio portion.
3. It seems to have gone away after shutting it off.

What sort of CD-ROM or CD-RW drive do you have? This problem has
generally been associated with buggy hardware that returns false
results to the kernel so it appears that you have a CD-ROM in
the drive when you don't.

I have a creative labs 52x mx cdrom.  It only happens when these options are on,
since I turned them off they have ceased.
Comment 3 Oliver Schulze L. 2003-02-06 08:51:37 EST
have you tried a newer kernel? Like 2.4.18?
Comment 4 John (J5) Palmieri 2004-08-25 13:15:54 EDT
Closing bug.  Magicdev has been removed in favor of
gnome-volume-manager in the development branch.
