Description Bryan O'Sullivan 2005-05-03 14:59:23 EDT
Description of problem:

Looks like it can't load sd_mod during early boot, and panics.

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

kernel-smp 2.6.11 1.1282_FC4 x86_64

How reproducible:

100%
  
Actual results:

I'll attach a console log. It's a bit mangled, but serviceable.

The oops would have to be decoded by hand, but I think it's the module load
that triggers it.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-05-09 19:53:09 EDT
it looks like your initrd is broken at first guess.
Still happening with subsequent kernels ?
Comment 3 Jacques Rodary 2005-06-27 18:34:11 EDT
I have a similar problem with kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4
 and kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 on a i386 smp box, with only scsi disks. Here
is the error log:
     Creating root device
     Mounting root filesystem

Happily enough I had a custom kernel which runs. Everything was OK with  RedHat
or Fedora Kernels till now, and that surprised me, as the kernel config tells
you to load scsi adapter *not* as a module if your root filesystem is an scsi disk! 
Comment 5 Jacques Rodary 2005-07-10 10:28:33 EDT
Still happening with kernel-2.6.12-1.1387_FC4 kernel-2.6.12-1.1390_FC4
kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1387_FC4 kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1390_FC4 and I even tried to
make a new initrd!
Comment 6 Dave Jones 2005-10-06 01:42:18 EDT
How about the latest errata ? 

Comment 7 Bryan O'Sullivan 2005-10-06 14:42:29 EDT
Seems OK, thanks.  I think you can close this if you want to.
