Description

hrev28661 and certinly before, I haven't tried to mount a floppy in a long time. I am unable to mount a floppy disk. The system just ignores the drive.

Running DriveSetup does not show the device.

The same floppy mounts in BeOS hrev5 and Zeta.

The driver should be in the image at least:

AddDriversToHaikuImage disk floppy      : $(X86_ONLY)pc_floppy ;

Not like I use it daily though, I don't recall testing it in Haiku itself, so maybe it breaks here, but it definitely works are least for reading in ZETA.

Though it would need some more work as it currently doesn't use ISA DMA (which isn't implemented).

Btw, the fact it's not in DriveSetup doesn't mean it doesn't work. It's probably just not picked up by the partitioning subsystem, maybe because it's a BeOS style driver.

Replying to mmu_man:

There is a file in: /boot/beos/system/add-ons/kernel/drivers/dev/disk/floppy/pc_floppy linking to: /boot/beos/system/add-ons/kernel/drivers/bin/pc_floppy

Yes, that's a BeOS style driver, as opposed to drivers using the new framework.
