Description Stephen Warren 2013-12-19 00:25:14 UTC
Description of problem:

The driver for ASIX USB Ethernet adapters isn't packaged into the armhf installer initramfs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Fedora 20 release images

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

Boot ARM installer with ASIX Ethernet adapter plugged in, and no other Ethernet devices

Actual results:

System drops to emergency shell, since root FS image can't be downloaded, since there's no network.

Expected results:

ASIX module is loaded, networking is initialized, installer proceeds.

Additional info:

While TrimSlice has a built-in PCIe ethernet which works as an alternative, most other NVIDIA Tegra-based boards don't, so this limits where the Fedora installer can be used.

IRC #fedoram-arm:

<dgilmore> we probably need to patch dracut to pull the module into the installers initramfs

(00:16:44) dgilmore: pbrobinson: its supposed to know how to find them all and pull them in

Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2013-12-19 15:26:34 UTC
can you show me the output of:

$ nm <path to ASIX USB Ethernet kernel module>
