Description Milan Zazrivec 2008-03-28 07:04:14 EDT
Description of problem:
New installation of RHEL5.2-Server-20080326.0 on a s390x
system:
When creating initrd for installed kernel, mkinitrd stays
cycling in an infinite loop causing the whole installation
to fail.

The problem is findstoragedriverinsys() routine and this while-loop:

while [ ! -L device ]; do
            if [ -L subsystem ];then
                cd slaves;
                for x in *;do
                    if [ -L $x ]; then
                        cd $x;
                        break
                    fi;
                done
            fi
        done

This is the layout of /sys/block/dm-0:
/sys/block/dm-0
/sys/block/dm-0/slaves
/sys/block/dm-0/slaves/dasda2
/sys/block/dm-0/slaves/dasdb1
/sys/block/dm-0/slaves/dasde1
/sys/block/dm-0/slaves/dasdf1
/sys/block/dm-0/slaves/dasdg1
/sys/block/dm-0/slaves/dasdd1
/sys/block/dm-0/slaves/dasdh1
/sys/block/dm-0/slaves/dasdc1
/sys/block/dm-0/holders
/sys/block/dm-0/subsystem
/sys/block/dm-0/stat
/sys/block/dm-0/size
/sys/block/dm-0/removable
/sys/block/dm-0/range
/sys/block/dm-0/dev
/sys/block/dm-0/uevent

The while loop gets to /sys/block/dm-0/slaves/dasda2
and cycles in an infinite loop.

Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-03-28 08:03:27 EDT
This bugzilla has Keywords: Regression.  

Since no regressions are allowed between releases, 
it is also being proposed as a blocker for this release.  

Please resolve ASAP.

Looks just like what I'm seeing when testing gfs2 partition installs (bug#438743)?
