Floppy 1

Postby alan2273 on Wed Jan 03, 2007 3:27 pm

When i ran Edgy Eft, i had a problem with 2 floppy drive entries, i found the answer to this on the Ubuntu forum.
After installing Bea the same problem occured, if anyone has the same problem this will cure it.

to fix that floppy problem, open up a terminal and type sudo gedit /etc/fstab hit enter, your passwd etc.

look for the line (should be the last one) that says

/dev /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0

and change it to

/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0

save, exit and restart... that should fix it

Thanks, I already wondered where they both came from.
