I'm seeing the same thing on a dual P3 system with disks on a SCSI adapter (no
insmod messages during boot).  The SMP kernel will not boot, but the UP kernel
does as does the 2.6.11-1.35 SMP kernel.  I mv'd modprobe.conf and hwconf and
reran kudzu before installing 2.6.12-1.1372.  /etc/modprobe.conf contains
a line for the SCSI adapter (alias scsi_hostadapter aic7xxx) along with the
other devices (sound and ethernet).
Comment 2 Lyman Byrd 2005-07-21 08:23:40 EDT
I also have a failure on booting but my problem is:
insmod: Error inserting '/lib/sata_Promise.ko': -1 unknown symbol in module.
Error: /sbin/udevstart exited abnormally
unable to find device-mapper major/minor
blah blah blah..
I am also booting the smp kernel because I have dual zeon processors. I have not
tried booting the non smp kernel but when I drop back to the 2.6.11-1.35_fc3smp
kernel I have not problems.
