Description Ray Curtis 1999-02-22 19:16:21 UTC
System i386/scsi cdrom/ide harddrive

I just got the latest boot.img dated Feb. 19, and tried
using it to do a install using a scsi cdrom and an IDE

Looks like it was built incorrectly, I can get thru the
install procedure until I get to the Install Bootloader and
it fails.

I found it can't insmod loop.o with an error:
Kernel-module version mismatch
Loop.o was compiled for kernel version 2.2.1-ac3
while this kernel version is 2.2.1-4.

New boot images were put up 2/22/1999. These should correct this.

Comment 2 Ray Curtis 1999-02-22 21:18:59 UTC
Got the new boot.img dated Feb. 22 and  still the same problem:
fails at the Install Bootloader stage, so I go to a shell and try
insmod loop and get the error:

insmod loop.o:
	Kernel-module version mismatch
	loop.o was compiled for kernel version 2.2.1-ac3
	while this kernel version 2.2.1-6

Looks like the kernel has been updated but the loop module
remains at the same version as it was before.

You must have matching boot.img and install media.  The next snapshot
should fix everything.
