Description Erik A. Espinoza 2005-10-28 00:49:54 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b5) Gecko/20051006 Firefox/1.4.1

Description of problem:
I am running fc4 x86_64 on a Sun v40z. Once installed I ran 'yum -y update', which installed kernel-smp-2.6.13-1.1532_FC4 and kernel-2.6.13-1.1532_FC4. Upon reboot, the machine did not recognize any of the drives connected to the LSI Fusion Card, which caused an init panic because it couldn't find the disk.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.13-1.1532_FC4, kernel-smp-2.6.13-1.1532_FC4

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fc4 on machine with LSI Fusion Card
2. boot up
3. yum -y update
4. reboot
5. crash

Actual Results:  System crashed

Expected Results:  System boots properly

Additional info:

I rebuilt a kernel using the kernel source and configs doing the following:

# rpm -i kernel-2.6.13-1.1532_FC4.src.rpm
# cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
# rpmbuild -bp kernel-2.6.spec
# cd ../BUILD/kernel-2.6.13/linux-2.6.13
# cp configs/kernel-2.6.13-x86_64-smp.config .config
# make menuconfig  <== Below is a diff of the changes made
# make bzImage ; make modules ; make modules_install
# mkinitrd --builtin=mptbase --builtin=mptscsih /boot/initrd-2.6.13-prep.img 2.6.13-prep
# cp arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.13-prep

I modified the grub and rebooted, the system boots up perfectly. For some reason building the drivers into the kernel works correctly. Using the modules does not. I had also tried to rebuild the initrd with --preload for the scsi modules with the fedora rpm, but that also failed.
