When I boot RH7.2 lately I have been seeing a [FAILED] in mount /dev/fd0 "is not a valid block device"
Hasn't bothered me as whenever I wanted to use the floppy I did: mount /dev/fd0 and it came to the party just fine and wrote/read
Here is the /etc/fstab and ls -l
[root@localhost root]# ls -l /dev/fd0
brw-rw---- 1 ken floppy 2, 0 Aug 30 2001 /dev/fd0
owner vs. users makes no difference in fd0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy vfat auto,owner,kudzu 0 0
Why it's NOW a huge problem is that I just got my RH8.0 and tried to upgrade and that falls apart with:
I've googled for an answer, and found lots but none was the 'right' one, I've tried PETS and nothing jumped out that was clearly the problem
Error mounting device fd0 as /mnt/floppy No such device or address OK to reboot? and that goes on for as long as I want to play the game.
As root (not su) I tried depmod -a and it returned nothing (but completed)
Anyone have a clue what to try next?
