Description shon 1999-10-18 20:13:19 UTC
After installing the full RH61 distr. and rebooting I
noticed repeating messages in 'dmesg' stating there had been
a disk change on ide1. Killing the magicdev process solved
the problem. Removing kudzu from the rc.3 rc.4 and rc.5
trees solves the problem too. Messages in DMESG get repeated
once every 30 or so seconds approximatly. Behavior is
consistent with that of a friend of mine who runs RH61 as
well and confirmed this phenomena on his machine. My machine
is a Dell Dimension XPS T450 (PIII 450) with 1 25 gig HDD on
the first IDE and a Toshiba DVD-rom + SONY CDRW 100 on the
second IDE.

It's in magicdev; kudzu doesn't actually run as a daemon.
