Description of problem:
Ok, this is wierd. I boot Fedora on a Dell Inspiron. I've got an internal hard drive and also a PCMCIA Viper drive. The Viper is setup in fstabs and mounts just fine. I can read/write to it, but... when I run fdisk it can't open it! I can't format it, nothing. One day it was working fine, and the next, fdisk cant acess it. I know I changed something, but what? I'm logged in as root, sudo, blah blah. No good.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.type fdisk /dev/hde
3."can't open /dev/hde"
Actual Results: "can't open /dev/hde"
Expected Results: show me the drive, blocks, filesystem etc. Give me menu
Is there a hde in /dev?
What hd* devices *do* you have in /dev?
Well, theres hda* that shows all the partitions on my internal drive including
linux and also Fat32. No hde can be found.
What is the output of 'find /proc/ide'?
