linux kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev fd0 sector 0


Dear all,

I installed SuSE 9.3 on my notebook. Right after finishing the installation and rebooting the machine I get an error:

Apr 30 04:05:26 linux kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev fd0 sector 0

Apr 30 04:05:41 linux kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev fd0 sector 0

Any ideas?

Regards, Carsten

linux kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev fd0 sector 0

Hi - I am getting exactly the same - no I installed from a DVD - everything (and I mean everything) was working fine till I powered off and restarted the machine for the first time. To be precise. I installed Suse 9.3 over Mandrtake 10.1, on an AMD Duron 1.2gig, 512meg, 80gighd, SonyDVD and floppy. Installation finished , web access used to download updates etc from Suse site, floppy used to xfer data into Evolution, DVD used to load Thunderbird. Romoved all media and powered down then restarted - got that error message - any help grovellingly appreciated !!!

Hi, I ran into the same problem with suse 9.3. Although the error message does not give a clue about it, at my machine this had to do with SUSE changing back the window/displaymanager to faulty settings. If that is the case you should edit /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager and change DISPLAYMANAGER="xdm" to DISPLAYMANAGER="kdm" (if you use kde). Also modify /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager DEFAULT_WM="twm" to DEFAULT_WM="kde".

I haven't found out why SUSE does this and am still experimenting with ways to prevent SUSE from changing it back (it does that every now and then). Hope this helps.
