Raw devices boot up error


I had to take a picture of my screen to figure out what this line was at boot up. Let me know if this is something I can correct. It's toward the end, right after, "Starting adt [ OK ]". The next line is: "Assigning raw devices:Cannot open master raw device '/dev/rawctl' (No such file or directory)"

Thanks in advance.

You can safely ignore that error message. It refers to using a dvd drive or cdrom as a "raw device" as opposed to a "block device". You have to have certain modules loaded to do that which aren't loaded by default. You normally won't have any need to use your optical drive as a raw device so you don't need to worry about it. I get the same error message.
