Description Matt Domsch 2008-01-27 23:14:33 EST
Description of problem:
I would like to be able to boot my laptop from the SD card reader.  I've hacked
up a F8 LiveCD-to-iso initrd to add modprobe mmc_block; modprobe_sdhlc, before
it starts udevd.  This works great.

My request is to add these three modules to /lib/modules/$kernelversion, and
ensure they get loaded by /init.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
git HEAD fac234567c754e18fcf9e35bb102b251861bbe2f
Comment 1 Matt Domsch 2008-01-28 00:53:09 EST
as notting noted to me on IRC, sdhlc will get autoloaded from its PCI IDs
present in the driver.  mmc_block is normally loaded by
/etc/udev/80-drivers.rules, but this isn't present nor created by mayflower's
init right now.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2008-01-30 11:56:47 EST
Added some bits to git that should make this work
Comment 3 Matt Domsch 2008-01-30 21:28:36 EST
/me can't read.

please s/sdhlc/sdhci/.

I'm building an image with this change.  If it helps, the mmc_block driver and
its deps did get pulled into the image.
Comment 4 Matt Domsch 2008-01-30 22:34:33 EST
after the above substitution, this now works as expected.  Please patch and commit.
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2008-01-31 00:06:08 EST
Pushed, sorry about that.  I shouldn't have noticed it too
