From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 4.0)

Description of problem:
Although I have the line:
alias scsi_hostadapter initio
in the file /etc/modules.conf, 
this module is not loaded on startup (i have an external scsi Iomega 
Zip attached to it).
I need to manually do 'modprobe initio' in order to use the Zip.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Turn the PC on
2.try to mount /mnt/zip

Actual Results:  Error messages about device /dev/sda4

Expected Results:  I should be able to mount the zip without manually 
invoking 'modprobe initio'

Additional info:

Sorry for my poor english

Is it in your initrd? What happens if you remake the initrd?

Comment 2 riki 2003-12-01 22:07:18 UTC
I don't know if initio is in my initrd (i don't know how to know it,
the controller was there during the installation), i remade initrd and
now initio module gets loaded correctly.

mkinitrd -v test 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl
Loading module initio

cp test /boot, vi /boot/grub/grub.conf, reboot, ok!!
thanks a lot!

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-12-01 22:33:17 UTC
Did you remake the intird at all after installing the adapter/editing
modules.conf until now?

Comment 4 riki 2003-12-01 22:49:20 UTC
i did it fot the first time when you asked me to. The adapter was
already installed when i installed fc1 and i didn't edit modules.conf

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-23 20:52:14 UTC
The latest mkinitrd packages automatically pull storage adapters for attached
devices into the initrd, which should eliminate the need for this.
