/dev/fd0 error filesystem read-only
Last modified: 2008-01-15 23:29:30 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert bad floppy
2. perform any operation
3. linux reports error correctly, first time, and reports read-only file system
until next power up boot
error reported, floppy replaced, error cleared
You would need to unmount the filesystem and mount the new one when replacing
Does unmounting the filesystem and remounting it work?
Filesystem was NOT MOUNTED ... I was doing a
dd if=floppy.img of=/dev/fd0
got an i/o error (bad sector??), it stopped, every time after that accessing
with dd would claim READ ONLY FILESYSTEM ? Like it was not clearing the error
from the floppy controller ????
I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.
I'm closing this bug as its difficult to see how we can troubleshoot this issue.
The reporter is starting with what they accept is bad media for reasons unknown.
Please re-open if you feel this is incorrect however we will need to debug the
issue using known good media only. Thank you for taking the time to file the
original bug anyway...
