Description of problem:


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

system-config-netboot-0.1.41
kernel-smp-2.6.18-1.2239

How reproducible:

TFTP/NFS Server:

yum --installroot=/diskless/root install kernel-smp-2.6.18-1.2239.fc5
cd /usr/share/system-config-netboot/diskless
./updateDiskless /diskless/root 2.6.18-1.2239.fc5smp /tmp 
mv /tmp/vmlinuz /tmp/initrd.img /tftplinux/linux-install/fc5
# update ramdisk_size in pxelinux.cfg/default
# initrd.img size calculation from updateDiskless

PXE Client:

Power On,  kernel image and ramdisk ist loaded, kernel boots ....

...
RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block 0
EXT2-fs: blocksize too small for device.
grow_buffers: requested out-of-range block <VERY LARGE NUMBER> for device ram0
No filesystem could mount root, tried: ext2 iso9960
Kernel panic - not syncing ...


Additional Comments:

I have upgraded many kernels this way up to kernel-smp-2.6.17-1.2139_FC5
without problems.
