I found the following warning in my dmesg log, and I cannot find any references to the warning, or what it means, or how to fix whatever caused the warning:

Warning: /proc/ide/hd?/settings interface is obsolete, and will be removed soon!

Any ideas out there?

Thanks -

Use the source, Luke!

This message is from the ide driver, and it's warning you that sometime in the future the /proc/ide/hd?/settings interface will be removed from the kernel and you should plan to stop using it.

Most likely, you have an init script that is using this interface to set a disk parameter (like dma off/on or something).

You don't need to do anything. The maintainer of the init script (or whatever) will have to fix the problem when the interface is actually removed from the kernel.
