Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 18157
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
As linux 7.0 is loading from a cdrom or floppy boot. from the text or
graphical mode and
upgrading from 6.2 .
Failed to read /module/module-info
install excited abnormally
then it starts a kill process
then it does an umounting and tells me i can Reboot my computer.
First, this isn't a bug with lilo, it's with the install code. Second, it most
likely isn't a bug with the install code either, this almost always means you
have bad installation media causing the install program to not be able to read
the module-info file. Try using another floppy disk (try several for that
matter, I've seen people think they had good floppy disks laying around and
installation would continually fail, then when they went and bought some new
floppies to make the boot disk from things started working, I'm assuming that
you are making your own boot disks of course).
No I'm not making my own boot disk.
This problem happens when I try a cdrom install, using Redhats boot floppy, in
text or graphic
mode , it makes no difference.
Redhat support say's the problem is with the Kernel and AMD k6/3 and hardware.
I have no problems installing RH6.2 and it runs fine on this hardeware.
I experienced this problem and I have just tried burning a second CD at a slower
write speed, just to be certain, and that appears to be OK, so this must be down
to faulty CD media, rather than any problems with redhat 7 itself.
This is a Redhat cdrom and and it came in a Redhat 7.0 deluxe package.
And today I used this same Cdrom to load 7.0 on a Laptop with no problems..
I sure like the way Redhat does things , they don't think this is bug problem,
and there own
telephone support people said that it is and they have know Ideal when it's
going to be corrected..
Like baby we got your $ 80 bucks, thanks sucker.
No, this is a problem, and we would like your help to assist us in tracking it
down. Since the problem exists always when you load the initrd in any way at
all, it looks like it could be a problem with the memory layout or with the bios
(bios is used to read the initial ramdisk data).
Check any memory timing settings in the BIOS. Please also try the boot disk
I've made at http://people.redhat.com/msw/boot-7.0-slow.img. It has a modified
syslinux on it that loads data in a different way. Let me know if you find this
Also, make sure that the Red Hat Linux CD is not in the CD-ROM drive when
booting the floppy. If you get to the blue "loader" screen, that gives me an
important data point.
to make the disk.
moving to Needinfo status
Went to the Website you suggested and tryed to download the Boot.img but it just
spits the Gar-bage out onto the monitor and if I click on the Reload and hit the
shift-key it starts to download
and stalls a lot , but It doesn't save onto the computer anywhere. How do you
download this file.
i'am using Netscape4.73
And thank you very much for trying to help me on this. I hope I'am able to
reinstill my faith in redhat.
Go to http://people.redhat.com/msw/images and shift+click on boot-7.0-slow.img
Please reopen this report if you continue to have this problem.
I have the same problem, it seems to me a CD bad copy, becouse I tryied to run
the rawrite, and gives me probles and doesnot run this aplication, I runed
rawrite from the RH 6.1 and it worked, so it looks to me that same thing is
wrong with the CD
