Description Marco Pesenti Gritti 2009-02-07 08:29:57 EST
On Fedora 10, provided that cafe_nand and jffs2 modules are included, we can build a functional initrd to boot from the OLPC nand. This was regressed in rawhide by this commit:


We run vol_id on /dev/root, which in the mtd0 case does not exist, and we die.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2009-02-10 14:13:03 EST
Fixed in git, will build a new mkinitrd shortly

Thanks for tracking this down!
Comment 3 Scott Douglass 2009-03-16 22:36:01 EDT
This issue is not fixed in rawhide on XO.

Installing any kernel RPM yields an initrd that can't boot because "mtd0 is not a block device, skipping".

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 07:07:07 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
