hardware corrupted
 
Hi,

Someone is currently polluting my hardware by preventing me from reading my cd with my external device on my netbook : the problem occured this morning.

Does anyone can give a hand, please?

Wuthering.

Which system are you running there? Could you give error messages so we can analyze it. How do you know it is a attack to your machine? We need more information about the problem otherwise there is no way to guess what is going on.

Regards

*If this is related to the members other thread (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ok-4175454305/ ASUS netbook, Fedora 18) then he should at least be able to show 'dmesg' and /var/log/messages output right after attaching the external device and after trying to read a CD.

answer when I plug in my external device: "error : can't read the cd, impossible to access the cd device"

Eject the disk and then unplug the device.
Open a terminal window and run 'sudo tail -f ~/.xession-errors* /var/log/messages' (w/o quotes).
Now attach the device and check messages scrolling by for anything related.
Now insert a CDROM or DVD and check messages scrolling by for anything related.
Now (unless the CDROM or DVD gets mounted automagically) mount the disk and check messages scrolling by for anything related.
By now you should have a list of lines to post.

when no device is plugged:

[root@maman ~]# sudo tail -f ~/.xession-errors*/var/log/messages
tail: impossible d'ouvrir */root/.xession-errors*/var/log/messages* en lecture: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
[root@maman ~]#

when the cd device is plugged:
[root@maman ~]# sudo tail -f ~/.xession-error*/var/log/messages
tail: impossible d'ouvrir */root/.xession-error*/var/log/messages* en lecture: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
[root@maman ~]#

in english: no file of this kind

Sacre! 0) you should not need to run anything as root, 1) "*/root/.xession-errors*/var/log/messages*" isn't one string but two locations, 3) adding glob chars w/o knowing what you're doing can be a recipe for disaster. So log out and log in as unprivileged user and try again. If ~/.xsession-errors* then doesn't exist it's no problem, just 'sudo tail -f /var/log/messages'.
