Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 120475
sleep_on referenced by reserfs.ko but not provided by a kernel

Description of problem:
# depmod -e -F /boot/System.map-2.6.5-1.308smp
needs unknown symbol sleep_on
Messages like that show up also during a kernel installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Same problem in 2.6.5-1.309
The .315 kernel does the same thing. Problem still exists when trying
to recompile the kernel.
I had this problem when installing 2.6.5-1.308smp and the up kernel
also. There was no grub entry made and the intird was not created for
After I manually entered the kernel entries for the 2.6.5-1.308smp
kernel and ran mkintrd for both kernels, they loaded and seemed to
This failure seems that it bails out after the reiserfs error (I am
not using a reiserfs on this particular installation.) I would expect
the reiserfs error would not stop the kernel from being installed and
from creating grub entries and an intird image. I would expect a
warning message regarding the error and letting the installer keep on
I see no references to using vmware when encountering this problem. I
am running vmware 4.5.1 on an xp operating system. Is this problem
common on a regular installation or just using vmware installations?
I have not been able to compile any of Fedora's 2.6.5 kernels due to
the same reason. Simple inspection shows that ReiserFS' journal.c
references sleep_on(), while it is not included in sched.c.
I can, however, compile a "vanilla" 2.6.5 kernel (with the same
configuration) due to a different sched.c provided there.
I tried to mount my reiserfs volume on another computer that contains
a Fedora Core 1 installation. When I tried to mount the volume, as
root, I received the following error.
mount: fs type reiserfs not supported by kernel.
The kernel version is 2.6.5-1.315.
fixed in rawhide
