Description Eike M. Lang 2005-02-27 09:27:04 UTC
Description of problem:

The default kernel configuration includes support for the Amiga
FastFileSystem (affs) as a module, but does not include support for
Amiga-style partition tables. This does not make a whole lot of sense.
The chances of encountering a drive that has a PC-style partition
table with Amiga partitions on it are very slim indeed.

My suggestion would be to either add amiga partition table support
(preferred) or to remove the affs module for consistency reasons
because in order to properly use it the kernel will need a recompile

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Any kernel (standard and updates) released for FC3.

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 18:18:12 UTC
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.
