seeing same problem on FC5 with latest kernel there... only difference is I can
get most of the way through a couple of discs before it starts happening.


Comment 3 Chuck Ebbert 2007-03-28 19:49:52 UTC
Please test kernel 2937 or higher, from

Also post /var/log/dmesg from working and broken kernels.

Even though this dmesg shows /dev/hdd as "not ready" ... attempting to rip the
same CD with the earlier kernel does not have this same problem.
