No caching mode page a problem?
« on: April 24, 2017, 12:37:17 AM »
TC 8.0 x86.

Noticed during boot that I have two warnings

1) Missing usb file descriptors (which I'm not that worried about)

2) sdb No caching mode page found

It's the caching mode warning on my sdb device (my boot sd card) that got my attention.

Is the lack of a caching mode page something to worry about, or just indicative of my hardware?  Note that this sdb device is an micro-sd card I burned from the CorePlus installer image.

You can ignore it, just a notification about the hw.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Tiny Core looks for swap partitions or swap files while booting.
I guess your first drive contains a swap partition, while the second one doesn't.
