I think the udev that fixes this got tagged, right? So we can close it?

Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2010-02-23 05:52:13 EST
$ modinfo floppy|grep alias
alias:          block-major-2-*

I don't see the module aliases...
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2010-02-23 10:34:40 EST
I think in the interim upstream removed them.
Comment 8 Harald Hoyer 2010-02-23 11:02:34 EST
so.. should the modprobe.conf file reappear?
Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2010-02-23 11:20:29 EST
Not sure. Do we still have a large group of floppy users?
Comment 10 Bruno Wolff III 2010-02-23 11:37:44 EST
What's the downside of doing that?

I tried using smolt to see what the counts are, but it looks like the device statistics are factions of devices, not fraction of hosts with that type of device. Probably there is a way to get that data.
It does appear that floppy devices were rated 110 times.
