Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 437364
mkinitrd does not included needed drivers to mount root
Last modified: 2010-02-17 16:44:52 EST
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.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 297962 [details]
output from mkinitrd -v
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?
Appears to be sane with today's ia64 build closing this.
