mkinitrd doesn't load md (software raid) modules when devices use uuid in fstab
Last modified: 2009-05-06 12:42:12 EDT
Description of problem:
mkinitrd fails to load the needed software raid modules when my fstab contains:
UUID="48590061-6a57-470d-a90b-d25bb6e5786a" / ext4 defaults 1 1
..resulting in an unbootable system.
When I replace that line with this:
/dev/md1 / ext4 defaults 1 1
..the modules get loaded and everything works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Describe devices in /etc/fstab by uuid
2. run mkinitrd
resulting image doesn't try to load software raid modules
mkinitrd could use /etc/mtab to determine whether to load software raid modules. In mtab, devices that are described in /etc/fstab by uuid are listed instead as /dev/mdX
or, just load the softraid modules if they appear in lsmod.
Can you please retry this with the latest mkinitrd I believe I've fixed this with some recent cleanups I've done. Make sure you've got mkinitrd-6.0.76-1.fc11 or newer.
