Problem while loading floppy drive

Bug #352848 reported by Jotah on 2009-04-01
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

There's a very bad bug that denies you to use the floppy drive on Intrepid. To use it, you need to do a lot of things, as:

$ sudo su
# modprobe floppy
# mkdir /media/floppy0
# gedit /etc/fstab
and add this line:
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

I refreshed my Ubuntu and it didn't disappeared without do the steps above. I rly hope Ubuntu team fix it.

Thank you for reporting this issue, it helps make Ubuntu better. Confirmed.

Is it still an issue with Jaunty or Karmic?

Closing this bug as intrepid reached EOL in April 2010. please reopen it if you can reproduce it on a still supported release. As far as I know that steps are being done by the installer if you have a floppy drive. If you don't have a floppy drive present on installation time it doesn't add floppy entries as there's no point in adding them. (At least that's how it works here)

Changed in ubuntu:
