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).
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.
have you tried a newer kernel? Like 2.4.18?
Closing bug. Magicdev has been removed in favor of
gnome-volume-manager in the development branch.
