Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 237674
pata_pcmcia is loaded before ata_piix during install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:02 EST
Description of problem:
During install, pata_pcmcia is loaded before ata_piix so my ATA PC card becomes /dev/sda and the boot
disk becomes /dev/sdb. Can't imagine that this is desired. Don't know if anaconda or the kernel controls
this ordering, so I'm filing against anaconda initially.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It's largely based on things like where on the PCI bus controllers are. We've
got a hack to push some things to the end; I'll add pata_pcmcia to that list. I
will then proceed to beat my head against the desk :-)
Thanks for the report :) This'll be in post-test4
Can we get something into anaconda to force a particular module to load first?
I've got a disk server with 3 different controllers (ata_piix, sata_promise,
and sata_mv in this case) and really need force ata_piix to load first as that
holds to boot disks in order to do reliable automated upgrades and installs.
