Lightbulb KDE - "re-mounted. Opts: commit=0" message.

I use FVWM2 and occasionally use a KDE application like K3b, Krusader, etc. Whenever I would start a KDE application for the first time, I would see the above message in "dmesg". And it bothered me, and not just me.

Since kde-4.6.0 has been installed, some lines have appeared when I run dmesg :

EXT4-fs (sda1): re-mounted. Opts: commit=0

(only once)

What does this mean ?
Nobody answered Toto's question.

Also here ... no answer.

Pat's answer in this thread triggered me to look one more time at this problem.

This thread also helped me.

touch /etc/pm/power.d/harddrive
touch /etc/pm/power.d/journal-commit
and it's solved.

I actually put the following in both of these files and made them executable. I am not sure if this is necessary or if a simple touch is sufficient.

exit 0
chmod 755 /etc/pm/power.d/harddrive /etc/pm/power.d/journal-commit

Looks like another bug was accidentally fixed with the updates that just went up. What I discovered was that even though Red Hat is upstream for pm-utils, they don't ship the power.d directory because "power.d stuff breaks more than it helps" (comment from pm-utils.spec)!

If I had a dollar for every time I've seen that sort of thing from them, I could buy a large pizza and a beer.

Since I am on Slackware 14.0, I hadn't noticed that update.

For those of us not on current, the following will do:
ls -1 /usr/lib/pm-utils/power.d/ | xargs -I {} touch /etc/pm/power.d/{}
I just tried it. A simple touch seems to be sufficient.
