Description paul 2000-06-28 13:54:56 EDT
After upgrading to the latest kernel(2.2.16-3smp) (using
kernel-smp-2.2.16-3.i686.rpm ) the system no longer reboots 
The following messages are reported at boot time.
...
Loading aic7xxx.o
	/lib/aic7xxx.o kernel module version mismatch
			compiled for kernel version 2.2.5-15smp
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k block - major - 8, errno 2
VFS: Cannot open root device
Kernel Panic : VFS : Unable to mount root  b 08:02

notes: 2.2.5-15smp was the previously installed kernel;
the root partition is on /dev/sda0 (hence kernel panic?)

system: Dell PowerEdge with Adaptec AIC -7890 Ultra2 SCSI adaptor, SCSI
hard drive (see notes) amd SMP.

Tested against kernel-smp-2.2.16-3.i686.rpm & kernel-2.2.16-3.i686.rpm 
Always occurs (unsurprisingly).

You might need to make a new init ram disk, with mkinitrd, using the
module for the newest kernel version.
Comment 2 Alan Cox 2002-12-14 19:04:56 EST
Newer rpm installs/updates build the initrd for you ok
