Hi
I have successfully built beyond linuxfromscratch to an almost full 
function desktop based on the lfs version 6.6 using the blfs svn 
version. I have a working word processor(abiword) a working 
spreadsheet(gnumeric) and have added audacious audio player. Audacious 
will read and play my audio cds. but gnome desktop will not mount the 
cdrom. I get the following error message on bootup.
[49358.956254] hdc: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete 
Error }
[49358.956278] hdc: command error: error=0x54 { AbortedCommand 
LastFailedSense=0x05 }
[49358.956288] hdc: possibly failed opcode: 0xa0
[49358.960145] end_request: I/O error, dev hdc, sector 1272680
[49358.960178] __ratelimit: 1 callbacks suppressed
[49358.960187] Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 159085
[49358.976083] hdc: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete 
Error }
[49358.976107] hdc: command error: error=0x54 { AbortedCommand 
LastFailedSense=0x05 }
and it repeats multiple times. I believe the error message comes from hal.
I have tried recompiling my kernel but I think everything is right there 
and I have messed with fstab but am not sure I have that right. I don't 
think there is anything wrong with the hardware as I have Ubuntu 
installed on a different partition on the same machince and it mounts 
the drive with no problem. I am open to any suggestions as to where to 
look for a solution.
