Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 162685
scsi modules need some sleep or they will block in some environments
Last modified: 2008-02-11 19:46:29 EST
Description of problem:
in my vmware environment (with BusLogic scsi emulation) the initrd produces
symbols not foudn errors. after it loads scsi_mod the next module (sg_mod) does
not find the symbols which are provided by scsi_mod.
i added a sleep 5 after the scsi_mod insmod, that solves *this* problem.
but on creating the device files (mkdevices) which is directly after loading the
BusLogic driver, the system freezes. i have solved that problem adding a sleep 5
after loading all the modules.
that *could* be not bad to have it generally, because some other modules could
have the same problem. a sleep before continuing normal operation could prevent
this. however it's not a good solution to sleep, but i see no other chance.
