Description Benj FitzPatrick 2005-12-11 19:06:51 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050921 Red Hat/1.0.7-1.4.1 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
After install I used up2date to get the latest SMP kernel, and everything works ok still.  Then I used it to get the rest of the updates.  After it reboots it runs into problems during init where it says that my 2 sata partitions /dev/sda2 and /dev/sdb2 are already mounted or busy so it can't mount them.  If I try to mount them manually once I login I receive the same error as well.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  Neither of the sata drives get mounted.

Also, the box is an iwill dk8x (w/ latest bios) with 8x512MB of corsair pc3200
reg/ecc and dual opteron 275s.  I have 4 other computers with opteron 246s and
275s which do not exhibit this problem.

Please attach fstab and /var/log/dmesg.

What SATA driver are you using?

I am using the silicon image driver, sata_sil.  I noticed that SysV was one of
the first programs to be updated by up2date, do you think the problem might lie
Comment 6 Jason Baron 2005-12-12 20:28:59 EST
strange. ok, to help narrow this down as a possible kernel problem. If you
reboot the old kernel does the system come up normally? Can you also please
specify the kernel versions that worked and did work, via 'uname -a'. thanks.
Comment 7 Benj FitzPatrick 2005-12-12 20:49:41 EST
Just to let you know, the first error that pops up during init is:
INIT: Entering runlevel: 5 quotas: [failed]

This happens for all kernels I have loaded (2.6.9-5.EL and 2.6.9-22.0.1.EL and
the smp version).  I can't use the 2.6.9-5.ELsmp kernel b/c I get an error and
it hangs before it ever gets to init.

Just to be sure to answer your question, no the old kernel (2.6.9-5) does not
come up normally either.
