slack 10: KDE Freezes


I have recently done a clean install of Slack 10. KDE keeps periodically freezing up; I am certain this is a KDE problem as it does not happen with windowmaker.

When I press Ctrl-Alt-F1 I see the following messages running or similar but for other devices:

Checking /dev/cm206cd for cdrom...
Testing /dev/cm206cd for cooked ioctl() interface
Unable to open /dev/cm206cd: No such device or address
Testing /dev/cm206cd for SCSI interface
/dev/cm206cd is not a SCSI device

I never saw this under slack 9.1 & assume that this is the problem, i.e. whatever it is that is running that causes this output is also what is locking up the system. It is periodic but occasionally freezes up totally & I have to do a hard reboot.

Any help appreciated thanks
