Description

error message in console CTRL ALT F1 =
ata: FAILURE - zero length DMA transfer attempted
ata: setting up DMA failed

This error repeats 10 times every 5 seconds approximately. Problem according to this thread is with hald. User forced a rebuild of the port and errors went away. As far as I can tell strictly cosmetic, but could become a problem later.

Looks like this was fixed upstream, should be fixed in our current set of packages.
