Description Con Tassios 2005-05-13 03:41:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
In the %pre section of a kickstart script an rmmod cciss will hang, preventing the module from unloading.  This is part of a shell script that creates a RAID set configuration on HP Proliant SmartArray controllers.  The cciss module needs to be  unloaded and then reloaded in order to pick up the new configuration.

An lsmod shows the 'Used' column as being equal to the number of logical drives currently configured on the RAID controller.

The unloading of the cciss module does work on RHEL3, but not on RHEL4.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  rmmod cciss in %pre section of kickstart script

Actual Results:  cciss module fails to unload.  

Expected Results:  module should unload.

This appears to be a problem in anaconda and not the cciss module itself.
