Subject2.6.5-mm3, cdrom gotcha
Greetings all;

I just rebooted to 2.6.5-mm3 while a cd with the Planet CCRMA image on
it was in the writer. It took the boot about 5 seconds to get past
the IDE1 piece of the scan, and it squawked about the drive having
'incompatible media'. I have a line in my rc.local that uses hdparm
to turn the dma back on after the kernel decides to turn it off, and
that also spit out a media error although an hdparm -d indicates dma
is on. dma works just fine with that drive.

After bootup, I tried to mount the disk, but again got the media error
and fail message. Removing the disk and rebooting again, and its all
working again.

Is this a bug? Seems like it to me. Its not something I've noted
before, but then the drive is usually empty, so this is a new error
to me and I cannot say when it started happening.

Cheers, Gene
