floppy



Hello,

My floppy was working OK in FC7, but in FC10 I get:
 mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
gives:
mount: /dev/fd0 is not a valid block device

modprobe floppy
gives:
FATAL: Error inserting floppy (/lib/modules/2.6.27.24-170.2.68.fc10.i686/kernel/drivers/block/floppy.ko): No such device

The file:
/lib/modules/2.6.27.24-170.2.68.fc10.i686/kernel/drivers/block/floppy.ko
seems OK

insmod /lib/modules/2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.i686/kernel/drivers/block/floppy.ko
gives:
insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.i686/kernel/drivers/block/floppy.ko': -1 Invalid module format

Is the file corrupted ?

I created the device:
 mknod /dev/fd0 b 2 0

but I also have:
/dev/fd/0:
 /dev/fd/0 -> /dev/pts/3

 mount -t msdos /dev/fd/0 /mnt/floppy
gives:
mount: /dev/pts/3 is not a block device

What is wrong ?

Thank.
