Floppy, still couldn't get to read diskette


Hello,
I try all the suggested tricks I got to the point where the floppy is mounted on boot up every time, if I look under the computer icon the floppy icon is there by double click it access the floppy the message appears "unable to mount location, no media in the drive". Almost there. any suggestion?
by the way the diskette is a good working DOS working diskette.
I am using FC14.

Hello vonelli,

first thing, check if the kernel is configured for floppy-disk-support. It's in "Device-Drivers"->"Block-Devices" the first point.

Then check if your kernel supports the old fat16 filesystem of DOS.

Hello kenholtmeyer,

it is rude behavior in this forum to hijack other people's threads!
It is as well rude behavior to kick other people's threads from the zero reply list!
And it is rude behavior to post unrelated rubbish to other people's threads!

Please read the forum-rules: http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/rules.html

Markus

Fedora and other distro's may have ways to select user rights. See that and add in I think they call it removable media as a right to that user. It will then mount the floppy by insertion.

Well, yet I remember I'm in the group "floppy" on my system (although I don't have such a drive), maybe it would work to add the user to the group floppy.

vonelli ,HOW did you

" I got to the point where the floppy is mounted on boot up every time"
if you used fstab that will not work !

the kernel no longer looks to see if there is a floppy drive any more
3,5 disks are no longer even manufactured
3.5 disk drives are no longer even manufactured
3.5 disk drives are not installed into new computers

so the kernel dose not even look for them any more at boot .

YOU need to set the modprob to look for it

On my old ( 2001 DELL ) I manually set it if i need in on ScientificLinux 6.1
Code:
mkdir /mnt/floppy
modprobe floppy
and if needed
"mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy "

I did both, when I double click on the floppy icon the floppy drive led light up and try to access the diskette, but it thinks that is not mounted.
It is true that the floppy are faced out but for the moment I have a big collection of them filled with data and blank, what am I to do, go to windows every time I need to use the the floppy?

@vonelli: did you check that your kernel supports fat16 as I wrote above? If the filesystem isn't supported by the kernel, mount will not work.

" I did both, "
then what is the fstab line
you might need to be root to use the floppy

I don't know how to check it, I look search for "Device-Drivers" and "Block-Devices" they do not exist. I will appreciate if I can get a detailed direction on how to. thank you Vinny

Please append your .config from your kernelsources to your post.

You may as well check by yourself for
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_FD (floppysupport) and CONFIG_VFAT_FS (for the FAT filesystem).
Code:
grep -i blk_dev_fd .config
Code:
grep -i vfat_fs .config
note that the -i option means "not case sensitive", it is necessary.

There is "BLK_DEV_FD and VFAT_FS" in this file but grep does not return any thing.
