Yep, same here (and it is triggered by vinum). > What can I do about these messages? Remove it. It should not have been there in the first place, at least not without an "if (bootverbose) ..." in front of it. It isn't telling any news anyway, because you certainly already knew that your disks are using DD mode, and the last word is telling "(ignored)" which is the intented and expected action to happen anyway. I do understand Peters gripe about broken BIOSes that try to interpret fdisk tables (where the fdisk table is actually in the domain of the boot block itself). The comments tell a bit more about it. But adding pointless messages that flush the boot log and possibly hide important boot messages can't be goo. -- cheers, J"org .-.-. --... ...-- -.. .
