Description Zhong Qiyao 2007-02-07 09:12:06 UTC
Description of problem:
If you write a large file (nearly 1.44M) into the floppy,
you sometimes get wrong content for FC4 and almost always gets
wrong content for FC5.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC4 official version, Chinese Traditional chars language interface.

How reproducible:
FC4: about 10%
FC5: about 90%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a file of nearly 1.44M. You may use Windows "arj" to create this file.
2.Use FC4 to write to floppy. Unmount and mount it back.
3.Compare the floppy version with the original. You may use Windows Commander
trial version to create this file.
Actual results:
Sometimes a whole block of content is wrong.

Expected results:
Both files are the same.

Additional info:
Can you also e-mail me at <lotus @>?


Comment 1 Zhong Qiyao 2007-02-08 05:51:53 UTC
Fedora Core 4
Kernel 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4


Comment 2 Pete Zaitcev 2007-02-15 20:26:04 UTC
What about FC6?

Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2007-04-10 19:30:56 UTC
Moving to FC5. Needs testing on FC6 as per comment #2.

Comment 4 Zhong Qiyao 2007-04-24 07:40:04 UTC
I don't have access to an FC6 computer, and I e-mailed back
that FC6 is probably too heavy for my computer.
If this is a result of lack of system resources, and you have
a powerful computer, try opening a lot of applications, and try this bug.
