SubjectCD-Burning -> Kernel (warning?): __alloc_pages
Everytime I write a CDRom, I get several errors like this in my messages-file,
but the kernel does not panic/crash/freeze:

kernel: __alloc_pages: 3-order allocation failed (gfp=0x20/0)
kernel: __alloc_pages: 2-order allocation failed (gfp=0x20/0)

My Kernel version is 2.4.19-4GB (From SuSE 8.1) and I use a Ricoh RW9200
IDE-CD writer with the ide-scsi interface and xcdroast (cdrecord). I have a
AMD 751 (Irongate) chipset. If you need any more information, please tell me.

I want to know what this message means and if this is something to worry
about. My written CD's seem to be o.k.

Best Regards,
