    Odd error related to media at boot time


    When ever i leave a dvd in my bluray drive i notice that i get an error pop up during my boot process twice.

    Code:
    end_request: I/O error, dev sr0 , sector 4096
    Buffer I/O error on device sr0 , logical block 512
    Why is this do i need to create some sort of symbolic link from dev sr0 to my /media/cdrom0?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Remove the disc before you reboot?

    I dont need to do that as this error does not seem to cause a problem. I just am OCD and like to have zero errors on my system as much as humanly possible

    $spacer_close

    Then change the boot sequence in the BIOS so that the system does not try to boot from the CD reader first.
    Then instead of OCD you can be 0CD.

    Good point! My system is a server/workstation, so it will always boot first from HD. If I want to boot from CD/DVD, then I have to interrupt the boot and select to boot from CD/DVD/USB. Changing your boot order will effectively enable the same sort of behavior.
