Description of problem:
This kernel will not boot on my machine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
These boot messages appear to be relevant:
SCSI subsystem initialized
ata_piix: Unknown symbol ata_scsi_ioctl
ata_piix: Unknown symbol ata_std_bios_param
ata_piix: Unknown symbol ata_tf_read
Machine boots fine with 2.6.11-1.27_FC3smp.

This is a kernel serial boot log
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

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
what does your /etc/modprobe.conf look like ?
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.
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'.
I got about the same problem on 2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp, but not on 2.6.12-
My error is : insmod: error inserting '/lib/ata_piix.ko': -1 Unknow symbol in

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).
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.
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.

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.
