Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-05-07 18:39:18 UTC
Description of problem:

For a built-in floppy the following entry in /etc/fstab is created during

/dev/fd0                /media/floppy1          auto   \
                                     pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

but putting a floppy in a drive does not even cause an attempt to
rescan so it is not mounted.  Just no activity registers anywhere.
Mounting that floppy from a command line is not a problem and a corresponding
icon does show up on a desktop.

I checke on x86 and x86_64 installations and results are the same.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Comment 1 David Zeuthen 2005-05-07 19:56:03 UTC
Sorry, we can't really poll legacy PC-style floppy drives. If we did, it would
make a lot of physical noise. So automounting won't work for these, sorry. It
didn't work in FC3 either.
