Description Toralf 2003-03-13 17:01:49 UTC
Description of problem: We have some Toshiba laptops with USB floppy drives. These drives are identified as "USB Mass Storage devices", and assigned to device file /dev/sda via SCSI emulation. An entry for the unit is not added to /etc/fstab. I want: Drive assigned to /dev/fd0 and standard /dev/fd0 entry added to /etc/fstab - or - /dev/sda /mnt/floppy auto noauto,users 0 0 automatically added to /etc/fstab. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.99.52 How reproducible: Every time Steps to Reproduce: Actual results: Expected results: Well, it's obvious, isn't it? Additional info: Possibly related to bug 59068.

/dev/fd0 is impossible. They don't support the same floppy interface. What does 'cat /proc/scsi/usb-storage-*/*' say?

Created attachment 90811 [details] updfstab.conf used as workaround I'm currently using this updfstab.conf to enable support for the drive, and antother interesting unit, too. This should probably be in the default, though. And maybe match floppy "TEAC FD" would be even better (?) (This device + possibly other unsupported units would be detected.)
Comment 4 Toralf 2003-04-01 14:36:22 UTC
Messed up the comment a bit again ;-/ What I meant to suggest in the last note, was that just "FD" might be used instead of "TEAC FD" in the match string.
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2004-02-25 11:55:52 UTC
I think this might have been fixed since 0.99.96. Have you tried Fedora Core 1?
Comment 6 Toralf 2004-04-07 09:44:16 UTC
The "floppy" entry in Fedora Core 1 /etc/updfstab.conf.default looks promising, but I still haven't been able to test it...
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2005-03-29 20:55:32 UTC
Closing bugs on older, no longer supported, releases. Apologies for any lack of response. Assuming fixed in the current trees (note that HAL and fstab-sync handles this now.)
