Description Mick Tantasirikorn 2000-07-19 19:54:20 UTC
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 
manager window.
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/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"

Comment 1 Dan Taylor 2000-08-23 20:24:38 UTC
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.
