failed to set xfermode

Postby ht204 on Wed Sep 14, 2011 9:41 am

hi i'm having this problem on LMDE 201108 RC 64 gnome under boot. this means i can't use my dvd drive in LMDE (pioneer 215).

this problem does not occour on LM 11 main edition or any other linux distro's i've tried recently. motherboard chipset is Intel p67 (sandy bridge).

a quick 'dmesg | grep ata' in terminal provides following info:
