Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 4730
aic7xxx.o out of date after upgrade to 6.0
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
After upgrading Redhat 5.1 to 6.0, booting from harddrive
fails with message:
/lib/aic7xx.o kernel-module version mismatch compiled with
2.0.35 while we are 2.2.5-15
Then the root filesystem fails to mount, etc.
The system boots fine from the boot diskette made during
the upgrade to 6.0 and finds the SCSI drives, etc.
How can I get a aic7xx.o built for 2.2.5-15? I didn't see
the sources anywhere in the distribution...
changed architecture to i386
Take the aic7xxx.o out of your /lib directory - chances are
that it doesn't belong to any RPM that's installed in 6.0
Actually the aic7xxx.o doesn't exist in /lib. The boot message right
before the kernel version mismatch message says "Loading aic7xxx
module". What does this mean?
I just noticed that in /boot I have a initrd-2.0.35-1.img but no
initrd-2.2.5-15.img. My lilo.conf is pointing to the initrd-2.0.35-
1.img. Could this be the problem?
Make sure you have a line in your /etc/conf.modules that says:
alias scsi_hostadapter aic7xxx
and then try running
'mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.2.5-15 2.2.5-15`
and editing your lilo.conf appropriately.
That worked. The entry in /etc/conf.modules was already there so all
I had to do was run mkinitrd and fix /etc/lilo.conf.
Thanks for your quick reply.
