Package: cdrom Severity: normal For no obvious reason, my current system started scanning /dev/sr0 (i.e. my DVD drive, even without any media inserted) about once every 30 to 60 seconds.
After reboot, I wouldn't expect that behaviour to continue, but it did. Removing the entry "/dev/sr0 /media/cdrom0" from /etc/fstab didn't make that stop. For explanation: My DVD drive is loud. I don't want to hear the repositioning noise every so-and-so-seconds. And, who does this, for what reason? -- System Information: Debian Release: 10.4 APT prefers stable-updates APT policy: (500, 'stable-updates'), (500, 'stable') Architecture: amd64 (x86_64) Foreign Architectures: i386 Kernel: Linux 4.19.0-9-amd64 (SMP w/6 CPU cores) Kernel taint flags: TAINT_PROPRIETARY_MODULE, TAINT_OOT_MODULE, TAINT_UNSIGNED_MODULE Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8), LANGUAGE=en_US (charmap=UTF-8) Shell: /bin/sh linked to /usr/bin/dash Init: systemd (via /run/systemd/system) LSM: AppArmor: enabled
