Description David Juran 2008-07-17 10:11:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Just as a test (yes, I know it's not a very common/sane use-case) I tried to
install Fedora 9 with root on an encrypted PV residing on a CCISS device. After
the installation was finished, the machine failed to boot. Inspecting the init
script that ended up in the initrd (attached) it seems like it doesn't even try
to load any scsi-modules...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a machine with root on an encrypted PV on a CCISS device
2. Watch it fail to boot

Does this work better now?
Comment 3 David Juran 2009-05-11 08:53:30 EDT
