Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 245990
cman module didn't load on startup (latest patches installed)
Last modified: 2009-04-16 16:33:15 EDT
Description of problem:
We have a fresh new RHEL AS 4.5 + cluster suite installation with the latest
patches installed with up2date. I'm sending you the rpm -qa output as an
attachment. At boot time, the cman.ko kernel module didn't load, because cman
module is not found in the correct directory.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 5)
Cluster Suite latest (which can be downloaded from the web site)
Install a new RHEL AS 4.5 with the cluster suite + latest patches. cman service
won't start because they don't find the kernel module in the correct directory.

cman service starts without errors.
I found that cman-kernel-smp package installs the following files:
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Apr 24 18:03
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 159616 Apr 24 18:03
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 185592 Apr 24 18:03
Current kernel version:
Linux t-clu02a.xxxxx.hu 2.6.9-55.0.2.ELsmp #1 SMP Tue Jun 12 17:59:08 EDT 2007
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
The kernel searches kernel module at /lib/modules/`uname -r`, but this directory
does not exists!
# ls -1
cp -r /lib/modules/2.6.9-55.ELsmp/kernel/cluster

"rpm -qa" output
I know "RHBA-2007:0135-3" bug fix advisory, but we have the latest patches
# rpm -qa | egrep "^cman-|^kernel" | sort
