Description W Agtail 2005-04-24 17:58:11 UTC
Description of problem:
usb_storage module loads before sata_sil module
would it be possible to change the order of installed modules?
I have two SATA internal drives and ks.cfg file on a USB/compactflash card.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
x86_64 FC4 test 2 ISO cd1
NB: the md5sum of this media appears to be incorrect - have tried 3 times from 3
different URLs.

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set BIOS to boot from CD
2. Insert CD (x86_64 ISO 1)
3. Insert CompactFlash Card with ks.cfg
4. linux ks=hd:sdc1/ks/ks.cfg
Actual results:
Unable to find ks.cfg from /dev/sdc1 (compact flash card)
CompactFlash Drive (usb_storage) becomes /dev/sda1
SATA disks (sata_sil) become sdc and sdd
No sign of sdb - ALT-F2, bash shell, 'fdisk -l'

Expected results:
SATA disks (sata_sil) become sda and sdb - as with FC3 (but couldn't get
LVM/RAID to work in ks.cfg).
CompactFlash Drive (usb_storage) become /dev/sdc - as with FC3

Additional info:
AMD Athlon 64 CPU
2 x internal SATA1 drives
1 x Floppy (IDE) / Media Card Reader (USB)

We have to load usb_storage early for cases where people don't probe or need a
driver disk.  This is why we then later do unloading to shuffle the module around.
