Description Larry Troan 2003-02-14 14:57:53 UTC
If the usb-storage driver is loaded, installing a new kernel will create a new ramdisk where loading of the usb-storage driver preceeds the loading of boot disk (LSI 1030 fusion driver in this case) driver in linuxrc. This creates a problem if there is a usb storage device during the boot (the boot disk was /dev/sda initially). USB device becomes /dev/sda and boot disk becomes /dev/sdb. This results in a failure to mount /boot/efi and swap. Workaround is to rmmod usb-storage prior to kernel installation. Unmounting the device does not make a difference since usb-storage is still loaded. We believe usb-storage driver should not be loaded before the boot disk driver. This was found on AS2.1 IPF. ---------- Action by: leventakyil Issue Registered ---------- Action by: leventakyil Status set to: Waiting on Tech ISSUE TRACKER 15708 OPEND BY INTEL AS SEV 3.

Note sure if Matt Wilson is correct assignee but do note believe ewt is correct;-)

This bug affects RH8.0 as well! If kernel is installed using up2date user is none the wiser until s/he attempts to boot on the new kernel.

It's in Taroon, it's not in QU2.
