My guess is that as... (2 Replies)

MAKEFLOPPIES - Creates the default floppy device nodes.
This manpage has been automatically generated from fdutils's texinfo documentation. However, this process is only approximative, and some
items, such as cross-references, footnotes and indices are lost in this translation process. Indeed, these items have no appropriate rep-
resentation in the manpage format. Moreover, only the items specific to each command have been translated, and the general information
about fdutils has been dropped in the manpage version. Thus I strongly advise you to use the original texinfo doc.
* To generate a printable copy from the texinfo doc, run the following commands:
./configure; make dvi; dvips fdutils.dvi
* To generate a HTML copy, run:
./configure; make html
A pre-made HTML can be found at: `http://www.tux.org/pub/knaff/fdutils'
* To generate an info copy (browsable using emacs' info mode), run:
./configure; make info
The texinfo doc looks most pretty when printed or as HTML. Indeed, in the info version certain examples are difficult to read due to the
quoting conventions used in info.
MAKEFLOPPIES [-tlvng] [drives]
The MAKEFLOPPIES shell script creates the new floppy block device node. It uses the floppycontrol program to translate the minor device
numbers into meaningful names. It also uses these names to decide whether to create a given block device file or not, depending on the type
of the physical drive (for instance, for a 3 1/2 drive, the formats corresponding to a 5 1/4 drive are not created).
If you have more than two floppy drives, you need to tell the kernel the CMOS types of those additional drives using the
floppy=drive,type,cmos lilo option.
If the drives parameter is given, only the device nodes for the listed drives are made. By default, all only the two first drives are
MAKEFLOPPIES does not work if you redefine your default formats.
Caution: MAKEFLOPPIES removes already existing floppy device nodes.
-t Use the old naming convention for 3 1/2 devices (e.g. `fd0H720' instead of `fd0u720').
-m Base the name for the created devices on the type of the media (e.g. `fd0h720' instead of `fd0u720').
-l Local. Creates device nodes in the local directory, not /dev
-n Dry run. (just report what would be done, do not do anything)
-g Group. Allow read/write access to floppy devices only for group `floppy'
The MAKEFLOPPIES script does not work on redefined "default" formats, If you redefine default formats, you need to create the needed device
