We are seeing this same error. When was this error first reported?

We disabled the UDMA on the dev pointing to our CD-ROM (i.e. hda) using the

Comment 7 masanari iida 2002-07-09 04:47:18 UTC
On tc3100 (HP NetServer) + RH7.3 have similar problem.

After some research on web, I found following patch in the
kernel mailing list.

I hope next RedHat beta (limbo2) will include this patch.

Comment 8 Arjan van de Ven 2002-07-31 13:13:13 UTC
dma is off by default for all cdroms (initscripts does this), but please do test
