Recently I have changed 5.2.1 to 5.3 via binary upgrade from CD.
I rare use a floppy, but yesterday I've got one, tried to read it and got a message:
"/dev/fd0: Input/output error".
I tried to load other OS from other bootable floppy - It worked.
I tried to boot from 5.2.1 CD and successfully read that (1st) floppy.
Then I reload 5.3 again and look into dmesg:
fdc0: (floppy drive controller (FDE)) port 0x3f7,0x3f0-0x3f5 irq 6 on acpi0
fdc0: cannot reserve DMA request line
fdc0: ic_type 90 part_id 80
fd0: (1440-KB 3.5" drive) on fdc0 drive 0
I tried to boot 5.2.1 again and noted same message about "cannot reserve DMA..."
But 5.2.1 works!
