Description Derek Tattersall 1999-03-24 19:18:54 UTC
mkdosfs ran to completion.  mdir on sparc failed.  did an
mdir on an intel, which gets a floating point exeception.
Appears to be a problem in mkdosfs.
used mkdosfs on intel, then mdir.  mdir works.

*** Bug 1745 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Attempting to do mdir a: on a freshly mkdosfs'ed floppy,
mdir crashes with illegal instruction.probably an endian-ness issue.  Anyone want to grab this one?

It was an endianness bug, patch being sent to Gafton.
