Description of problem:
On shutdown(!) /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia invokes cardmgr which gives on
console some info about inability to insert floppy.o (as driver for
block device 2). What could this be? Scanning /etc/pcmcia for any
floppy-related stuff did not return anything
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Pick laptop without floppy, install Fedore
2.Start to level 3
3.Shutdown and look at the console.
I, too, am seeing this problem on a Pentium 4-M notebook.
Also reproducable on IBM Think Pad X31. If I enable the legacy floppy
in the BIOS (this allows for the floppy in the dock) the error goes
When pcmcia devices are added or removed, updfstab is called to update
/etc/fstab for storage devices. It looks at the floppy port for floppy
devices, among other things.
'alias floppy off' in /etc/modules.conf should get rid of the messages
