usb floppy

Post by dr1445 » Sun Dec 03, 2006 2:55 pm

greetings forum,
the external usb floppy works with gnome but will not start with kde. seems to be an fstab/mstab problem. here is the fstab file,
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# /dev/hda1
UUID=5b0d0d00-0d48-4dc2-8882-029ba582dcb1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /dev/hda5
UUID=0d55b38b-00cf-45f4-bd7a-694e5fc7c827 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0

what line should i add to get the device working?

Not at all sure, but you could try this (assuming you have a single partition on the SD card, and its mounted at /dev/sdb):

/dev/sdb /media/MMC-SD ext2 defaults 0 0

(ext2 because journaling file systems (ext3,4) reduce the life of SDs)

[Edit] Another old post I replied to, due to previously stated problem of view reset to "ascending".
