Error from errors.log


Hi,

I keep getting this error:

Quote:
Jan 21 13:32:54 lb7 ata2: disabling port
Jan 21 13:32:54 lb7 hw_random: RNG not detected
Jan 21 13:32:59 lb7 udevd-event[2149]: wait_for_sysfs: waiting for '/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb2/2-2/2-2.1/2-2.$Jan 21 13:56:32 lb7 ata2: disabling port
Jan 21 13:56:32 lb7 hw_random: RNG not detected
I got no clue what it is. Now the things i tested worked fine so far, so i'm not missing anything except some minor problems using Totem.

Does anyone have a solution to (troubleshoot) the above?

Sincerely, Jørgen

Well, the message is, I think, telling you that you USB2 card in a PCI slot is not working properly as (again, I think) an ATA (e.g., hard drive) interface.

Do you have, perhaps, a memory drive in a USB port that's not working? Or that's been removed, but that your system "thinks" should still be connected?

Yes I have connected a USB key to my PC, and it didn't work. It's not connected now.

So you are right: My system still 'thinks' it's connected.

How do I make it forget?

Thanks for your help.

Sincerely, Jørgen

Strange. Sorry, I was just reading the error message, and have little experience with USB drives.

Perhaps re-installing the "key" and looking for some "umount" for the drive before shutting down would help. (Just guessing here.)

I'd suggest posting to the "Hardware" forum, are another post to this one, with a title like "Arch: How do I disconnect a USB device?" might get you a specific response. (I jumped in from the RSS feed, and could tell you that, on Fedora, the drive seems to unmount automatically when unplugged, but that won't help you much at all.)

Again, Sorry.

Hi,

I got it solved now

I added hw_random to the blacklist deamons in rc.conf.

Now only two more (minor) errors in the log to crack

Thanks for you help though!

Sincerely, Jørgen
