Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 83682
kudzu reports a floppy even though there isn't one
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:42 EST
Find a machine with no floppy drive like a laptop or a legacy free system.
Doing a kudzu probe returns a floppy device. Why? Is this a kernel thing? May
be related to bug #71036.
Usually, it's because there is a floppy controller and therefore a
bios-configured drive even if it's not present.
Are you getting the error messages from 71036? Or is it finding a 'detached'
No, I'm not seeing any error messages but I was wondering if having a floppy
device was hard wired into the kernel.
The main problem I have is that hwbrowser shows that the system has a floppy
when there isn't one. Is there some way to work around that?
You can grey out or not show devices that have the 'detached' property set to 1.
Oh, ok. I'll try that. We can close this bug then.
Actually, I'll assign it to hwbrowser so I remember to do this tomorrow.
Ok, should be fixed in hwbrowser-0.8-8. When the 'detached' property on a
floppy is set to 1, hwbrowser should now hide all the lower widgets and print
"No floppy drives detected" in the upper device list. QA, please verify.
There is a stack of 64 bugs that have been in Modified state for a long period
of time. I am closing these as Rawhide now. If you find that the issue is not
fixed, please reopen this report.
