log getting spammed


Hello,

I'm using ubuntu, and my /var/log/syslog file is getting spammed (more than once per second) by lines like this :
"init: ureadahead-other main process (15488) terminated with status 2".
How to make this stop ?

Thanks.

Hello,

Seems to be bug related. Have a look here. I'd check if an upgrade or patch is available for that package in question.

Kind regards,

Eric

hello Eric,
thanks for helping me once more. Your link is too difficult for me to understand. Basically, does that mean there's no solution available at the moment ?
What's the package that is causing the problem ? ureadahead ? (what does it do? maybe I can just remove it if I don't use it?)

Hello,

No problem at all. Have a look at this link, I found it on the bug report I posted earlier, in one of the posts.

http://tech--help.blogspot.com/2009/...ther-main.html

It states this solves the problem, but refers to mounting of drives manually. Have you got any mounts put in manually in your /etc/fstab file?

Kind regards,

Eric

I googled it too, and I found it may be related to fstab issues, but I'm not sure, and I don't know enough anyway to modify it.
Here it is, tell me if there's anything wrong with it, and how to modify it :

Code:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'vol_id --uuid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
# / was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=b58... /               ext2    relatime,errors=remount-ro 0       1
# swap was on /dev/sda6 during installation
UUID=a67... none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0       0
/dev/sda2   /media/DATA   ntfs-3g   rw,auto  0   0
(copied from the first post of my previous topic)
