  • Status changed from new to assigned
  • Type changed from task to defect

It seems this is linked to new kernels and fdisk probing. Found another SLES user reporting the same: As well some OpenSUSE users:

Cf: for one way to disable floppy if you don't need it from Linux.

Also, do you have a floppy disk declared in the BIOS of the machine ? If yes, and you don't have one, then disable it so it doesn't appear in Linux. Cf:

Anyway, it seems unrelated to mondoarchive per se, but linked to kernel changes.
