You can search for this bug and it seems like it may be related to ecryptfs and is many years old.
The symptoms are that you return to the computer and the screensaver was active or the screen was asleep/black and it doesn't seem to come back. But you check by SSH the computer is running fine and are frustrated you'll lose your running programs and have to reboot.

These errors believe it or not are simply because of not being the root user or running with sudo! However if you didn't know to try as root you'd think there was a problem with your burner or disc Essentially it looks like without root you cannot send the required scsi commands to continue writing. Ithink cdrecord should have built-in tests or safeguards to see if it has the permissions to run the required commands.

I changed my BIOS time to several hours in the past to match the current time, but this caused Linux to think there were incorrect filesystem times.

If you get that message it means you have inserted the adapter or device incorrectly. In my case the adapter needed to be at the rear end of the pins and it caused this message.

This is useful if you are installing Windows and need virtio but of course Windows needs the virtio driver which is on a second iso.

I bricked one of my cards by following a guide from UNRAID.
Step #1 from them wipes out the BIOS, but guess what? The step where you restore the BIOS should have been done first, which is sas2flash but no version supports or is able to find my Perc 6/i. So now I'm a bit stuck.
I tried using megarec but it's funny that it can wipe the BIOS but can't forcefully reload it:

One thing to remember is that you need MegaCli to do the flashing.
You also need the correct file,I tried at least 2 different Perc 6 firmwares from Dell that kept getting rejected as corrupt by MegaCli(they were really the wrong version). I have an external PCI-E Dell 6 Perc/I butI chose images from the 'Integrated" on motherboard version as it was allI could find. They are different, and below is my first time finding success.........
I flashed an LSI Logic firmware to it and it broke the BIOS (cannot do Ctrl+R) for booting purposes but allows other functionality to work normally.

This seems to be common for some reason when trying to run Windows 7 under KVM and 7 has always had strange issues with KVM. What happens for me is after the install it simply won't boot, it stays on the POST screen and does nothing.

The solution is to boot the install disc for Windows 7 and reinstall the windows MBR into the boot sector:

I experienced this with CPanel's Exim after an auto-update (a Google of this error produces lots of complaints with few clear solutions). In this case I'll put the solution at the top.

dev=/dev/sr0 specifies the device name of your burner (they say not to use it and to specify some weird annoying device string but using the raw /dev has always worked for me and is how it should have been implemented from the start IMHO)........

This is something that annoys a lot of people, fortunately the Redhat style OS's are the most simple in this respect. I disagree that Debian's way makes sense, it is more of a hackish approach in how they implement iptables.
