I have an Ultra5 running kernel 2.6.20r8. Portage tree is up to date 20070520.
uname -a: Linux darwin 2.6.20-gentoo-r8 #1 Wed May 23 14:37:40 ART 2007 sparc64 sun4u TI UltraSparc IIi (Sabre) GNU/Linux

The floppy part of the /etc/fstab file says:

/dev/floppy/0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto 0 0

Mounting ext2 formatted flopy with command "mount /mnt/floppy" works ok.
But when i try to mount a vfat(msdos) formatted floppy, the command gives "Bus error" and doesn't mounts the floppy.
If i modify /etc/fstab file, changing "auto" with "vfat", then works ok (for vfat floppy).
It seems that floppy filesystem auto detection doesn't works with vfat(msdos) formatted floppies.
Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi,

There's a file /etc/filesystems, where you can uncomment/specify "vfat" (on a separate line without quotes)...
Maybe then it works.

I made that changes, but didn't worked for me.
If i want to mount a vfat(msdos) floppy, i must specify the filesystem type in /etc/fstab file (or in mount command line if /etc/fstab says "auto").
Anyway, it's not a big deal. I left "auto" in fstab and made a little script for mounting vfat floppies.

Thanks.

Hmmm, instead of "auto", I use a list of possible fs for floppies in fstab. Mount tries in the given order.
Code:
...
/dev/fd0      /media/floppy   ext2,vfat,msdos   noauto,users      0 0
...
