fdformat and 0.95c+

Post by Michael Kenn » Tue, 23 Jun 1992 06:32:56



I'm having trouble getting fdformat to work with the mcc-interim kernel
(0.95c+).  All of the ioctl's are failing, is there some floppy driver
incompatability involved here?  Should I just wait for mcc-0.96?

Please respond by email.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks to all who replied to my original article.  I'm going to install
0.96b tonight and see if fdformat will work.

fdformat depends essentially on the 0.96 kernel.

1. help with 0.95c+ and mcc-interim-0.95c+ problems!!

the machine is Zenith 386sx with 4Mb Ram, 40Mb IDE hdisk,
1.4Mb and 360K floppies.

linux upto 0.12 has worked w/o problems on this machine.

1. 0.95c+(boot) and 0.95a(root); mmc-interim(0.95c+) work
   fine from floppies.

2. an attempt to install linux 0.95c+ on hdisk:
        mkfs -c /dev/hda2 5950
   results in an Reset-Floppy Called message display and the
   machine hangs (it is reproducible).

3. an attempt to install linux using mcc-interim(0.95c+);
   mkfs and mkswap go ok; on invoking 'install_root' more than
   a screen full of Reset-Floppy Called messages and the system
   hangs (reproducible problem).

4. hitting ^c twice logs me out (login prompt is seen..).

*5. in the floppy version of 95c+(boot) and 95a(root), i am having
problem with '>' key (shift .), it has to be typed twice before
the echo is seen -- generally used in redirection!
