kernel log full of "Device not ready. Make sure there is a disc in the drive."
In the last week or so my kernel log is full of messages like:
Device not ready. Make sure there is a disc in the drive.
Device not ready. Make sure there is a disc in the drive
$ tail -f /var/log/messages

It is also printed on the console.
I did some research on the web and I found some information that it was
an interaction between hal and my Yamaha SCSI CDRW drive. I created a
fdi for the drive to disable the media check but that didn't help. Then
I removed hal but the messages are still there.
Today I did some more research and I found that when I stop "dbus-1" the
messages stop. But I'm running kde and that uses dbus-1 so I can't
remove the package.
Any idea? I'm running Debian Unstable (updated this evening), with KDE
as my main desktop. The system is a Athlon T-bird with a Yamaha SCSI
CDRW drive as well as a Plextor atapi DVDRW/CDRW drive. I'm using
linux-image-2.6.12-1-k7 for my running kernel.
