Description mhagger 1999-10-08 08:52:09 UTC
I've just installed Redhat 6.1, and have noticed that I get
repeated messages of the form

"kernel: VFS: Disk change detected on device ide1(22,0)"

pouring into the syslogs.

The machine in question has an IDE ZIP disk and CDROM, but
no other IDE devices.

Obviously not a real problem, but a bit irritating.

This is due to magicdev polling your CD drive; check the CD properties
in the Gnome Control Center (gnomecc)
