Description Doug Chapman 2008-03-13 18:08:30 UTC
Description of problem:
I have seen this on ia64 and x86_64 with recent rawhide trees (20080312 since
0313 appears to be bad).  Both systems are using cciss for the root filesystem
so that might be related however I also don't see any other hardware specific
device drivers so I dont' think it is just cciss.

The install proceedes as expected but fails to mount root on the first boot.

I booted rescue mode and manually ran mkinitrd with -v and saved the output.  I
will attach this.  Odd thing is I _do_ see "Looking for driver for device
cciss/c0d0p2" however it still does not include the cciss.ko module.

Comment 2 Doug Chapman 2008-03-13 18:21:34 UTC
Might not be mkinitrd's issue.  I noticed there was no /etc/modprobe.conf.  I
manually created it and it then pulls in the modules to initrd.img.

What component creates /etc/modprobe.conf at install time?  Is that done by
anaconda or something that anaconda calls?

Comment 3 Doug Chapman 2008-03-14 17:15:28 UTC
Appears to be sane with today's ia64 build closing this.
