Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 35360
mkinitrd doesn't add parport_lowlevel when adding ppa.o

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)
mkinitrd, when putting ppa (the parallel port scsi module) into the initrd,
fails to add the lowlevel parallel port driver, so when ppa attempts to
load at boot time, you see a bunch of messages about unresolved symbols.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. attach a device which makes use of ppa.o
2. run mkinitrd and point lilo.conf at that initrd
Actual Results: unresolved symbols encountered in /lib/ppa.o (which is the
path to the ppa.o driver on the initrd)
Expected Results: no unresolved symbols, because the lowlevel parallel
port driver is included in the initrd
I just committed a fix for this to CVS and bumped the version number of mkinitrd. Please
build it into dist-7.3 if you are confident in the change.
Added parport as well since it's required by parport_pc and building now
Red Hat Linux and Red Hat Powertools are currently no longer supported by Red
Hat, Inc. In an effort to clean up bugzilla, we are closing all bugs in MODIFIED
state for these products.
However, we do want to make sure that nothing important slips through the
cracks. If, in fact, these issues are not resolved in a current Fedora Core
Release (such as Fedora Core 5), please open a new issues stating so. Thanks.
