Does it boot Ok with the UP kernel?

Are you upgraded to the most recent version of mkinitrd?

I think I've seen a mkinitrd race condition bug reported recently but I can't
find it.

Yes, it boots fine with UP. 

Version of mkinitrd = 4.1.18

I booted the SMP version again, and I see a bunch of errors about sd_mod before
the ata_piix errors:
sd_mod: Unknown symbol scsi_device_get
sd_mod: Unknown symbol scsi_wait_req


Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 00:14:41 EDT
what does your /etc/modprobe.conf look like ?
Comment 5 Dan Carpenter 2005-07-15 01:05:17 EDT
I found the bugs I was looking for:

Take a look at bug 160652 and bug 162770

There is a new mkinitrd available but it takes some grovelling around to get the
dependencies correct.  It's described in bugs what to do.
Comment 6 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 13:52:11 EDT
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.

I got about the same problem on 2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp, but not on 2.6.12-
1.1372_FC3 (non-smp).
 
My error is : insmod: error inserting '/lib/ata_piix.ko': -1 Unknow symbol in 
module

Machine : Dell GX280N 3.0Ghz

I updated my mkinitrd and initscripts (plus dependendices) to the FC4 versions
and I found that the problem still existed.  I finally fixed it by rebuilding
the kernel from the 2.6.12-1.1371_FC3smp src rpm (with the updated mkinitrd). 

I would try the new 1372 kernel but the machine is currently unusable (lightning
storm hit it).

Comment 9 Dan Carpenter 2005-07-20 00:20:12 EDT
You probably already know this (and if you don't it's too late anyway).

But you'll need to recreate the initrd after you install the mkinitrd package.

cd /boot/
mv initrd-2.6.12-1.1371_FC3.img initrd-2.6.12-1.1371_FC3.img.OLD
mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.12-1.1371_FC3.img 2.6.12-1.1371_FC3

Sorry about the lightning storm...

I have the same problem with 2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp, and no problems with
2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 (UP) version.

error is

insmod: error inserting `/lib/ata_piix.ko': -1 unknown symbol in module

Running the UP version here are my modules that are loaded:

Comment 11 tibyke 2005-07-25 17:08:25 EDT
im experiencing the exact same problem with a hp/compaq ml320 server and 

01:02.0 SCSI storage controller: Adaptec AHA-3960D / AIC-7899A U160/m (rev 01)
01:02.1 SCSI storage controller: Adaptec AHA-3960D / AIC-7899A U160/m (rev 01)

2.6.12 1372 FC3 smp gives me a nice lil kernel panic, yet 2.6.11 latest version
FC3 SMP works just fine. everything is up-to-date.

regards,
tibyke
