I have a machine set up for securelevel=2. I "kill 1" to get back to single
user mode to mount a floppy. With at least 50% occurance, maybe higher, the
system hangs when I do:
I have "/dev/fd0a /floppy msdos rw,noauto 0 0" in /etc/fstab.
It doesn't occur if I boot single user.
It doesn't hang that hard -- characters echo, pings are answered, but I
have to hit the red button to get out. I thought I had DDB compiled in, but
CTL-ALT-ESC doesn't get me into the debugger.
Any ideas? Anyone tried this?
