Floppy icon will not mount LS120 Drive
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
in either KDE or Gnome the floppy icon will not correctly mount the ls120.
"If you use a regular floppy drive :
Gnome: double clicking on the Floppy icon you get "/dev/fd0: Input/Output
error" warning box, but the drive is mounted buy you don't get file
KDE: clicking on the floppy ifon you get "The desktop entry
file /root/Desktop/Floppy Device is of type FSDevice but has no
Dev=...entry", and the drive is not mounted." <I will report this error in
a different bug# but I put it here as an info.>
gnome and kde floppy icons points to /dev/fd0 so it does not work.
However, if you mount the drive to /mnt/floppy first, the icons will work,
but if you mount it elsewhere it will not.
there is no entry in /etc/fstab regarding the hdc
/dev/hda5 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda1 /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda7 /home ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
/dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0
and here is the df -h output after mounting
using "mount /dev/hdc /mnt/ls120"
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5 2.9G 2.1G 750M 74% /

This seems to be working better in RC2 with GNOME. The ls120 is being added to
the /etc/fstab and in GNOME there is a 'Device 0' icon showing on the desktop
that mounts the drive & makes it accessible.
However KDE still fails. There is only a floppy & a cdrom icon showing up on
the desktop, neither of which work when there is an ls120 in the bay. Should
this be moved over as a KDE issue?
This should be fixed in 7.0. Don't have the hardware to verify it though.
