Description GeoffLeach 2004-05-27 21:15:36 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510

Description of problem:
mkinitrd reports "All of your loopback devices are in use." when in
fact none are.  The error happens because the code LODEV=$(echo
findlodev | /sbin/nash --quiet) returns nothing. The problem is
repeatable for a given boot-up, and generally goes away when I reboot.
Kernel is stock 2.6.6, built locally; problem has occurred with prior
2.6.x versions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.execute mkinitrd
2.observe failure
3.confirm echo findlodev | /sbin/nash --quiet

Actual Results:  %echo findlodev | /sbin/nash
(running in test mode).
Red Hat nash version 3.5.22 starting


Expected Results:  /dev/loop?

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-05-27 21:46:09 UTC
Do you have the loop module built/loaded?

Comment 2 GeoffLeach 2004-05-27 23:32:41 UTC
Yes, the loop module has been built, but now I remember, the last time
that this happened I figured out that the module had not loaded, and
modcomp fixed the problem
