I'm running 6.0-BETA3 and this is happening on all my floppies.
# fdformat /dev/fd0
fdformat: open(/dev/fd0): Read-only file system
# ls -l /dev/fd0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root operator 14, 103 Aug 31 13:14 /dev/fd0
(It was chmod 660 first and I changed it to 666 without benefit.)
I'm running as root. The floppies are not made read-only. With 5.4 (same
machine, a couple of weeks ago) it
still worked. I can't use dd to write something to any place on the
floppy. And I tried it with 5 floppies already.
