Description Marcus Hufgard 2004-03-12 13:11:29 UTC

If i want to install the actuall kernel-rpm with rpm -i --force
kernel-2.6.3-2.1.253.i686.rpm there comes the error message:

No module dc395x found for kernel 2.6.3-2.1.253, aborting.
mkinitrd failed
Fehler: %post(kernel-2.6.3-2.1.253) scriptlet failed, exit status 0

Comment 1 Warren Togami 2004-04-19 03:33:36 UTC
Why --force?  You must be trying to install it onto an old
distribution that is unsupported.  It probably would not work because
modutils and initscripts would probably have trouble with it.

# CONFIG_SCSI_DC395x is not set
The latest FC development kernel has this module disabled.  I am
guessing that it worked in 2.4.x kernel but it is either known to be
broken or completely untested in 2.6.  I do not see much complaining
about it on LKML in the last 6 months, so its status is unknown to me.

You may want to ask upstream about its status.

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2004-12-09 00:18:47 UTC
this needs fixing upstream. it's been broken for some time, and it appears
no-one cares about fixing it.
