Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:47 EST
Description of problem:
As talked per e-mail with you, I'm tracking down "my issue" and the
corresponding patch in this bug report here, that the information
mkinitrd 3.5.24 always creates and tries to use /sys - even at
kernel 2.4 and causes harmless but unnecessary error messages at
booting time, so I worked out a patch that fixes the issue for me.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Everytime, see below.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install mkinitrd 3.5.24 at FC1 or RHEL3
2. Install a new 2.4 kernel or recreate the mkinitrd
3. Reboot the machine and have a look to the booting messages
Patch is attached.
Fix at some time like I did it or better ;-)
This patch seems to be only for belong for the older (even aliving)
