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):
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'
Sorry for my poor english
Is it in your initrd? What happens if you remake the initrd?
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!
Did you remake the intird at all after installing the adapter/editing
modules.conf until now?
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
The latest mkinitrd packages automatically pull storage adapters for attached
devices into the initrd, which should eliminate the need for this.
