Default Error message about cdrom tray open during boot

I've started getting what I think are false warnings about my cd drive
during boot. They are triggered by hald and acpi-support and are of this
form:

ATAPI device hdc:
Jan 7 10:32:44 corinthia kernel: Error: Not ready -- (Sense key=0x02)
Jan 7 10:32:44 corinthia kernel: No reference position found (media may be upside down) -- (asc=0x06, ascq=0x00)
Jan 7 10:32:44 corinthia kernel: The failed "Read 10" packet command was:
Jan 7 10:32:44 corinthia kernel: "28 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 08 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 "
Jan 7 10:32:44 corinthia kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev hdc, sector 0
Jan 7 10:32:44 corinthia kernel: Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 0
Jan 7 10:32:44 corinthia kernel: Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 1
Jan 7 10:32:44 corinthia kernel: Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 2
Jan 7 10:32:44 corinthia kernel: Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 3
Jan 7 10:32:45 corinthia kernel: Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 4
Jan 7 10:32:45 corinthia kernel: Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 5
Jan 7 10:32:45 corinthia kernel: Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 6
Jan 7 10:32:45 corinthia kernel: Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 7
Jan 7 10:32:45 corinthia kernel: hdc: tray open

Then:

The failed "Read 10" packet command was:
Jan 7 10:19:29 corinthia kernel: "28 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 "
Jan 7 10:19:29 corinthia kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev hdc, sector 0
Jan 7 10:19:29 corinthia kernel: hdc: tray open
Jan 7 10:19:29 corinthia kernel: ATAPI device hdc:
Jan 7 10:19:29 corinthia kernel: Error: Not ready -- (Sense key=0x02)
Jan 7 10:19:29 corinthia kernel: No reference position found (media may be upside down


This is repeated many times, and then I get:

hdc: drive_cmd: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Er
ror }
Jan 7 10:32:50 corinthia kernel: hdc: drive_cmd: error=0x04 { AbortedCommand }
Jan 7 10:32:50 corinthia kernel: ide: failed opcode was: 0xef


After all this the system starts normally and the cd drive is usable.
(The drive was empty while booting.)

Oddly, I have a duplicate installation of Debian in a different
partition which does not produce any of this stuff. Same kernel
(2.6.18-4-686).


Googling produced a few reports of a similar phenomenon on other systems
(Ubuntu, Suse) but no clear indication of the cause -- just some
speculation about the kernel being at fault. Anyone else seeing this?
Anything to check?

Is your CDROM drive going bad?

That'w what I'm wondering. But it wtill works OK. And why does the

Have you tried reinstalling the kernel?

Linux-image-2.6.18-4-686 is not available now. I tried the currently
available kernel (2.6.23) but this gave the same error and also
prevented X from working for some reason. I removed acpi-support and the
error went away.

2.6.23 is not in Etch. If you're running lenny or sid with a 2.6.18-4
then you are seriously out of date. If you're running Etch with
2.6.18-4 then your are mildly out of date.

Current kernel on Etch is 2.6.18-5 and there have been several security
updates to it (without changing the version number). Ideally, you
should have the linux-image-2.6 meta-package installed which always
depends on the most recent stable version.

This is Sid. As I say, I tried the current kernel (2.6.23) there but for
some reason Icewm wouldn't start properly - it hung halfway through the
process. And the error message about /dev/hdc was there as well so it
doesn't seem to be a kernel problem.
