Default floppy

Hello,

man I make a mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy -t msdos
every thing seems OK (no complain), but it is just not mounted:
df does not show it and I can redo the command again and again!

mformat A: works fine!

Thank for your help.

Is this floppy formatted with a DOS FAT partition? You can't mount it
if there's no file system.

No idea if it makes any difference but I always did:

mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy

If that does not help, some suggestions for a couple of things to check:

- is it supposed to be /dev/fd0? Did you check in /var/log/messages
could it be /dev/fd or /dev/fd1 or something else?
- do you have the floppy kernel module loaded?
- did you check the output of ls -l /dev/fd*? Does it look ok?
- is /mnt/floppy ok? Do you have the proper rights to access it?
- if all else fails, blame SELinux for keeping you safe from those
pesky floppy viruses and temporarily do setenforce 0 and try again

Regards,
Patrick

Yes, that's right. Checking the man page, that's the right way to
format the command. And, of course, /mnt/floppy must already exist.

My memory is that on either F13 or F14, I was unable to get my floppys
to be recognized no matter what I did and there were some existing bugs
out on such. I never saw a resolution posted and have assumed that "it
ain't going to happen"

In that case maybe you can try a CentOS 6 Live CD/DVD and see if it can
read the floppy. Maybe parts of it are old enough to still appreciate
that floppy.
