Hello AlmaLinux community, I have a peculiar question. My PC has a native floppy drive support (G41 chipset), but I can’t get it to work. I have my floppy drive enabled in BIOS, in Windows OS it works perfectly, but in AlmaLinux there isn’t mountable device (/dev/fd0) and it seems floppy module isn’t even present in the system (“modprobe floppy” cannot find floppy module). Is there a package that enables floppy support, or some other fix?
the floppy drivers were removed in rhel 8.0
you’d have to recompile the alma kernel to put it back, its still in the upstream vanilla kernel as my debian 5.15 box has it
