I/O error with 2.6.0 kernel


I am running an up to date Gentoo Linux system with the 2.6.0 kernel. Everything is working great (including my Prism 2.5 PCI wireless network adapter) but I do have one question. I am getting a bunch of "end_request: I/O error, dev hdc, sector 0" reported in the dmesg. hdc is my DVD drive and it has no disk in it. Does anyone know why my system might appear to access my DVD drive periodically? I have no automouter tools installed or anything of that nature.

John

i think you just want to enable multimode for ide in the kernel... there is a comment for it in menuconfig that contains this error message, or somethign similar.

This doesn't seam to be the problem. I have multimode enabled already and I have tried it now with the option both on, and off, and it comes up with the I/O errors either way.

A little update on the problem, I get the I/O errors regardless of the multimode setting. However, with multimode enabled I cannot play DVD's with mplayer (can't access the disk) but with it disabled DVD playback works just fine.
