Description Piotrek 2004-03-10 17:24:53 EST
When upgrading from standard Fedora Core 1 for AMD64 to kernel 2.6.3 
on machine with via 8237 chipset (sata) 'make install' says:
sh /usr/src/linux-2.6.3/arch/x86_64/boot/install.sh 2.6.3 
arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage System.map ""
No module sata_via found for kernel 2.6.3, aborting.
mkinitrd failed
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make: *** [install] Error 2
No mather if the module is compiled into the kernel. 

Adding sata_via module to PRESCSIMODS in mkinitrd script solved the 
PRESCSIMODS="scsi_mod sd_mod unknown sata_via"
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-03-10 17:53:28 EST
Did you build sata_via as a module?
Comment 2 Piotrek 2004-03-10 18:11:23 EST
No, i tried to build it into the kernel, so it was really strange 
that mkinitrd was looking for a module. The same thing happend with 
raid0 (also build into the kernel). After adding this 2 modules to 
PRESCSIMODS in mkinitrd i managed to build and install everything (of 
course raid0 and sata_via where compiled into the kernel) and it 
works fine.

mkinitrd assumes that all of the modules in /etc/mod{ules,probe}.conf
are built as a module for your kernel.  If you're not doing this, then
--omit-scsi-mods is the workaround to use.
