Question Where does my floppy mount in core 9


Where does the floppy and CD mount in core 9. They are not listed in the fstab and I can't use mount /dev/fd0 from the command line, but I can mount in the GUI just fine.

Issue the command mount or cat the /etc/mtab file to find out where they're getting mounted. Usually Fedora will mount them in the /media directory or /mnt

you are correct

The mount point was /media/disk. Do you know why there is not an entry in the fstab for the devices?
Thanks

If you had an entry in fstab for floppies, that means unless you always have a floppy in the drive, it would fail every time one wasn't in there.

It was my understanding that any filesystem with the mount option set to noauto in the fstab would not automatically mount at boot time. In core 3 both the CD and the floppy had entries in the fstab. however with core 9 I dont see those entries and was wondering why the change?

Perhaps it uses autofs now?

Have a look in /etc/auto.misc
