Description Knut J BJuland 2000-12-22 06:14:32 UTC
I have made an initrd file and put initrd=initrd-2.4.0-0.43.4 into
When the pc boot this message appear.: VFS mount root ext2 filesystem.
kmod failed to exec /sbin/nodprobe -s -k block-major-3, errno=2. I have
update with lates modutils from rawhide and glics and gcc from
redhat-updates-7. I used kernel-2.4.0-0.25 to install the lates kernel, and
I run /sbin/mkinitrd initrd-2.4.0-0.43.4 and the edit lilo.conf. Before
running lilo.

The kernel mistakenly doesn't require mkinitrd >= 2.7; it needs to.

That way ide modules are included; this oversight will be fixed in
the next rawhide kernel. In the meantime, installing that
version of mkinitrd and running it should leave a working initrd.
