rawhide does not boot on HP Integrity with LSI Fusion scsi driver
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:32 EST
Description of problem:
The recent FC6 rawhide kernels do not boot on HP Integrity (ia64) servers that
have the LSI Fusion scsi adapter (which is nearly all models). I am able to
also reproduce this with upstream kernels.
When I recompile the kernel with this linked in vmlinux instead of as a module
it boots properly.
The .config changes I made to make this work were to set CONFIG_SCSI,
CONFIG_FUSION_SPI and CONFIG_FUSION_CTL all to "y" instead of "m".
The FC5 kernel booted OK with these still as modules. I am currently looking at
the 2 kernels to see what change might have broken this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot the latest rawhide install CD on an HP Integrity server
I just tried this again with 2.6.16-1.2195_FC6 and it appears to be working now.
Don't know if it was fixed or if I was just confused last week but I will keep
an eye on it to see if it starts failing again.
