Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 123152
No sata_sil support in install kernel
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:42 EST
Description of problem:
I have a dual opteron workstation with an onboard SiI-3114 S-ATA
controller. If I want to install Fedora Core 2 test 3 then I have the
problem, that the kernel module sata_sil is not available at install
time. If I install on a normal IDE harddisk and boot from there I can
do a modprobe sata_sil and then I have access to all connected S-ATA
harddisks, but I'm not able to install on a "S-ATA only" system.
Seems like the kernel on the boot CD is lacking some modules.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 2 test 3 CD 1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect S-ATA drives to system and no other harddisk.
2. Boot from first CD
3. The installer will complain about the absence of harddisk drives.
There is no way to load the required module "sata_sil" at this point.
SATA controller is detected automagically or at least is available in
the list of additional modules so that I can enable it for installation.
