Description Brent Fox 2003-02-07 01:13:28 UTC
Find a machine with no floppy drive like a laptop or a legacy free system. Doing a kudzu probe returns a floppy device. Why? Is this a kernel thing? May be related to bug #71036.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-07 06:18:22 UTC
Usually, it's because there is a floppy controller and therefore a bios-configured drive even if it's not present. Are you getting the error messages from 71036? Or is it finding a 'detached' floppy drive?
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2003-02-07 06:23:24 UTC
No, I'm not seeing any error messages but I was wondering if having a floppy device was hard wired into the kernel. The main problem I have is that hwbrowser shows that the system has a floppy when there isn't one. Is there some way to work around that?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-07 06:25:16 UTC
You can grey out or not show devices that have the 'detached' property set to 1.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2003-02-07 06:33:30 UTC
Oh, ok. I'll try that. We can close this bug then.
Comment 5 Brent Fox 2003-02-07 06:36:22 UTC
Actually, I'll assign it to hwbrowser so I remember to do this tomorrow.
Comment 6 Brent Fox 2003-02-08 00:15:13 UTC
Ok, should be fixed in hwbrowser-0.8-8. When the 'detached' property on a floppy is set to 1, hwbrowser should now hide all the lower widgets and print "No floppy drives detected" in the upper device list. QA, please verify.
Comment 7 Brent Fox 2003-05-25 14:29:43 UTC
There is a stack of 64 bugs that have been in Modified state for a long period of time. I am closing these as Rawhide now. If you find that the issue is not fixed, please reopen this report.
