Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2010-08-03 11:47:42 EDT
$ grep floppy /etc/group floppy:x:19: Hmm, this should be in setup-2.8.23-1.fc14.noarch a long time now..
Comment 2 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2010-08-03 13:35:33 EDT
There is no group entry for floppy in /etc/group. script failure? Adding the floppy group fixes this problem BTW did Kyle succeed in killing the floppy.. * Thu Aug 06 2009 Kyle McMartin <firstname.lastname@example.org> 22.214.171.124.133.rc5.git3 - die-floppy-die.patch: it's the 21st century, let's not rely on steam powered technology. ;)

Your wish is my command...
Comment 5 Ondrej Vasik 2010-08-07 01:32:20 EDT
Reservation in uidgid file for group floppy (19) is done for packages dev/MAKEDEV. I don't think this should be created by default by setup - maybe udev is better idea - the same way it is done for groups dialout, cdrom, tape ... why not for floppy?
Comment 6 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2010-08-12 05:20:02 EDT
Harald ping. . .
Comment 7 Harald Hoyer 2010-08-12 05:37:11 EDT
well, then.. so be it..
Comment 8 Harald Hoyer 2010-08-12 05:54:02 EDT
So, should udev just check _every_ group it needs? Including "root", "tty", "lp", "disk", "kmem"?
Comment 9 Harald Hoyer 2010-08-12 05:54:28 EDT
Comment 10 Ondrej Vasik 2010-08-12 06:42:40 EDT
You don't need to check for these - as setup already creates them - they are in the basic /etc/group provided by setup during installation and setup package is always on the system... I just don't want to add floppy group to default system groups (especially nowadays) ...
