Description of problem:
x86 smp box locks up on .1411, 1413, 1421, 1422 and 1425 (both smp and
non-smp kernels).  Last good kernel to boot is 1400.

 with the following error:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-1411 through 1425

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot the kernels


Actual Results:  kernel panic

Additional info:

kernel 1400 and previous work fine,

I made a new initrd --with=aic7xxx --with=sd_mod and it now works fine.

mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.12-1.1425_FC5smp.aic7xxx-2.img initrd-2.6.12-1.1425_FC5smp

Are you running the most recent mkinitrd?  `rpm -q mkinitrd` There have been a
bunch of mkinitrd bugs reported recently in the last week that have been fixed
by upgrading to the newest one.

I think the plan is to make the new kernel rpms depend on a new mkinitrd but
that hasn't happenned yet.

Comment 3 Justin Conover 2005-07-11 09:42:29 EDT
initrd-2.6.12-1.1426_FC5]# ls lib/
dm-mirror.ko  dm-mod.ko  dm-snapshot.ko  dm-zero.ko  ext3.ko  jbd.ko  raid0.ko

I have the latest mkinitrd in rawhide.  I update my box daily.


# rpm -qa | grep mkinitrd
Comment 4 Pekka Pietikäinen 2005-07-11 10:00:39 EDT
Also have you tried mkinitrd -v to see if it's even trying to include it? Does
regenerating a 1400 initrd break too (use a different name for the file tho :-) )?
/etc/modprobe.conf look ok ? (as in alias scsi_hostadapter aic7xxx or whatnot)
Comment 5 Justin Conover 2005-07-13 18:23:31 EDT
Please close, this was created from a third party product, removeing aic7xxx
from modprobe.conf
