hal daemon not recognize floppy mount points


Hello. I use Scientific Linux 4.1 (clone of RedHat EL 4) and i have install kernel 2.6.13 from source. After this hal daemon can't recognize floppy device. Floppy support is compiled in kernel. Default kernel in Scientific Linux is 2.6.9-11 and i have configure kernel 2.6.13 with the same modules and built-in stufs. Other devices - cdroms, usb flash recognize perfect. But i don't know - whats is with floppy! Please, help me!

I think that RedHat screwed up the udev start up procedure so that it no longer creates a /dev/fd0 for the floppy device. I have the same problem with 2.6.9-11 (RedHat EL 4.0).
You can manually make the device node 'mknod /dev/fd0 b 2 0' .
Also, as a work around you can make a device node in directory /etc/udev/devices and the the udev facility will generate a device node in /dev/fd0 automatically when the system is rebooted.
mknod /etc/udev/devices/fd0 b 2 0
