Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 157154
hal does not work with "regular" floppies anymore
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:43:28 EST
Description of problem:
For a built-in floppy the following entry in /etc/fstab is created during
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy1 auto \
pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
but putting a floppy in a drive does not even cause an attempt to
rescan so it is not mounted. Just no activity registers anywhere.
Mounting that floppy from a command line is not a problem and a corresponding
icon does show up on a desktop.
I checke on x86 and x86_64 installations and results are the same.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Sorry, we can't really poll legacy PC-style floppy drives. If we did, it would
make a lot of physical noise. So automounting won't work for these, sorry. It
didn't work in FC3 either.
