floppy drive / smartd


When I boot up linux it gives me a Failed error for smartd. And when i shut down linux it gives an error witht the floppy driver and gives me the driver location and such. Then is shuts down. I have a laptop with no floppy drive. How can I uninstall the drivers or change something so it won't look for a floppy. And is that the error in smartd? because i have no floppy. I am using fedora distro. If the errors aren't related how do i fix them both?

"is that the error in smartd? because i have no floppy."

Probably.

" How can I uninstall the drivers or change something so it won't look for a floppy."

Look in /etc/fstab and see if you have a line describing /dev/fd0. If you do then comment out that line by putting a # at the beginning of the line.

I don't see anything that resembles that but here is my fstab:

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hdc6 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/hdc5 /root/Desktop/HD auto auto 0 0
/dev/hdc2 /root/Desktop/HD2 auto auto 0 0
