Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187371
kernel 2080_FC5 breaks dmraid initializing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
With the kernel released with FC5, dmraid installing and booting worked
flawlessly for my NVRAID0 array. I recently updated several packages, including
the kernel, and restarted into the new kernel, hoping to be able to finally have
a decent video driver easily installable. Unfortunately, although grub still
works fine, as soon as it gets to the message "Red Hat nash version 5.0.32
starting" it outputs the errors:
device-mapper: dm-stripe: Target length not divisible by chunk size
device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument
And successively can't find any partitions, and kernel panics.
Booting back into the old kernel with no other changes still works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kernel 2.6.16-1.2080_FC5 on a dmraid-interfaced array
2. Attempt to boot the kernel
Kernel panic - can't load dmraid
I'll install the test kernel 2069 to see if it has the same issue. If you have
any easy method for obtaining the log of the boot since it isn't finding any
partitions to save the log, let me know.
Same problem with 2.6.16-1.2069_FC5
The same problem with 2.6.16-1.2084_FC5.x86_64
I think that's the same probleme here:
Thanks for letting me know.
