Subjectide-floppy.c vs devfs
Paul,
Is ide-floppy supposed to be devfs friendly? I ask
because on Linux 2.4.15-pre2 (and previous kernels)
on the Powermac (Debian ppc sid) I find that the
ide-floppy driver only creates device for my ide
zip if a zip disk is inserted at boot time. Otherwise
the /dev/ide/host1/bus0/target1/lun0 directory doesn't
contain a device node for the zip whereas the ide-cdrom
driver creates a /dev/ide/host1/bus0/target0/lun0/cd
fine without a cdrom disk inserted at boot time. I find
that the only way I can get the zip device created at
boot time without media inserted is to use ide-scsi
emulation and turn off ide-floppy when I configure the
kernel. Is this issue a known problem and does it
exist for other arches than powerpc (Powermac)? Thanks
in advance for any advice.
Jack
