    /etc/fstab modified & borked

    was having a very simple minimalistic fstab and was running fine.
    but recently (since a couple of weeks) 2 new lines entry have been added related to non existant floppy drive (/dev/fd0)
    of course the system try to mount that stupid hardware ghost.

    Wonder which package upgrade have modified this fstab .

    thats an old bug that seems to have crept back in . IIRC it was back around gutsy that it first showed up .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    thanks but have you an idea of the package to blame ?
    on my side i was thinking about some wine updates, as i've not seen package changelog talking about fstab tweaked by upstream.

    no Idea what package caused it then or now , I'm not seeing it on my sys either on my updated precise or my couple day old daily install , I'll check the daily again after the update now in progress completes .

    i'm only doing upgrades, no daily install here. Googling around it seems that util-linux is the right package to report against. The wrong fstab entry even does not match with blkid.
