Thread: Message log filling up with kernel: sr0: CDROM not ready msg

  1. #1

    Default Message log filling up with kernel: sr0: CDROM not ready msg

    I am kind of new to Linux, I have Opensuse 11.1 installed.

    When I view my message log (tail -f /var/log/messages) I see the following message appear about 3-5 times per second;

    kernel: sr0: CDROM not ready. Make sure there is a disc in the drive.

    This happens whenever there is not a disc in the drive, however; if I put a disc in the drive then the message stops and everything seems to operate normally... I get the KDE menu allowing me to select what I want to do depending on the content of the disc. I am able to open whatever content on the disc that I want to work with.

    I would very much appreciate suggestions on how to suppress the messages if they are nothing to worry about or to fix whatever is causing the errors.

    Thanks
    Joe

    Do you have an entry in /etc/fstab for sr0 ?

    If yes it should have attributes 'noauto,user,ro'. Otherwise show what

    cat /etc/fstab
    says.

    Doesn't look like I have an entry in there. Here are the results of the command:

    #cat /etc/fstab
    /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST31000340AS_5QJ0X5K4-part2 / ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 1
    /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST31000340AS_5QJ0X5K4-part3 /home ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2
    /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST31000340AS_5QJ0X5K4-part1 swap swap defaults 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
    debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0 0
    usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
    /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST380013A_5MR5QVWV-part1 /windows/E ntfs-3g users,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask= 022,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0

    Thanks for the quick response,
