problems with templates on floppy disks
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
I encounter problems using templates of KDE to access
floppy disk drives.
As on many linux systems, I use to mount vfat and ext2
formatted diskettes. There is a field in the template to
indicate which filesystem to use.
I made the test with a MS-DOS diskette, under konsole.
mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy -> works for ext2 disks
mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy -> works for MSDOS disks
when filling all fields of template, with /dev/fd0,
/mnt/floppy (yes, directory exists), and vfat as fs, I
always get the same message : " unable to mount , blah blah
If you simply click on the icon, it will try the default filesystem type given
in /etc/fstab, which is probably ext2. If you right click on the icon, you will
be able to either mount the specific type you entered (vfat) or default.
This works for me in our test lab.
