Description Leonardo Quijano Vincenzi 2004-09-07 11:56:58 EDT

Description of problem:
When building a custom 2.4.x kernel based distro, its modules aren't
correctly packaged in the installer images (initrd.img). The installer
tries to find (*.ko) to package the modules, even though you can
specify a 2.4 kernel in mk-images and such.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a custom 2.4 kernel based distro.
2. Use buildinstall or mk-images to build the distro's images.
3. Check initrd.img to see there are no modules.

Actual Results:  The images where not created with all the
corresponding modules.

Expected Results:  Anaconda should ask, in its scripts, for the kernel
version number. If 2.6, then use the .ko suffix. If 2.4, use .o.

Additional info:

For example, in mk-images:

findmodule () {
    if [ ! -f $CACHE ]; then
        find $KERNELROOT/lib/modules/ > $CACHE
    grep "/$1\.ko" $CACHE
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-07 12:04:37 EDT
There are a lot of other things that won't work with that anaconda and
a 2.4 kernel as well.

2.6 kernel or higher is required for it.
