Hi !

This is my first post on this list, and I could need some help
to know if I made something wrong or if it is a bug ....

I compiled a new kernel and activated following option

General Setup > Sysctrl Support

in order to be able to use hotplug , udev .....

But on boot I become following error message concerning
my second harddisk (/dev/hdb) which is dedicated to my
old Win2k system :

Nov 12 19:15:13 ishwara kernel: hdb: read_intr: status=0x59 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error }

> Nov 12 19:15:13 ishwara kernel: hdb: read_intr: error=0x04 { DriveStatusError }
> Nov 12 19:15:13 ishwara kernel: ide: failed opcode was: unknown
> Nov 12 19:15:13 ishwara kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev hdb, sector 78172098
> Nov 12 19:15:13 ishwara kernel: Buffer I/O error on device hdb5, logical block 61785735

it can last two or three minutes and then I have accsess to my
Gnome Desktop.

This arrives on a 2.6.7 or 2.6.9 kernel if I try to activate Sysctrl
in General Setup, if I deactivate it, I have not such error messages ....

To resume it : Is it a bug ? Or did I make something wrong ? Forget some options ?

System : Pentium 4 2,8Ghz
Motherboard Asus P4P 800
Chipset I865PE
and two Maxtor ATA-Harddisks

Thanks for helping
