  Date: Nov 24    Category: Unix / Linux / Ubuntu    Views: 319

I lose, accidentally /dev/fd0 bynary file.

The command issued was "rm fd0".

Platform: Intel & Suse distribution 7.3

Is there any way to rescue it?

Well done, you just removed your floppy drive :)

BTW, this isn't a binary file, it's a kernel device driver node.

As root, run:

# cd /dev
# mknod fd0 b 2 0

This will re-create the block device major 2, minor 0.
