Description Warren Togami 2009-02-26 16:03:33 EST

root=dhcp boot fails here...

Loading nfs module
nfs: Unknown symbol nlmclnt_proc
nfs: Unknown symbol nfsacl_decode
nfs: Unknown symbol nfsacl_encode
nfs: Unknown symbol svc_gss_principal
nfs: Unknown symbol nlmclnt_init
nfs: Unknown symbol nlmclnt_done

--with-avail="nlmclnt_proc nfsacl_decode nfsacl_encode svc_gss_principal nlmclnt_init nlmclnt_done" fails to pull these modules into the initrd.
Comment 1 Warren Togami 2009-02-26 17:00:27 EST
Hey Steve, do you know if anything in the upstream kernel changed that might have caused this?  Does mkinitrd have to somehow adapt, or is this a kernel bug?
Comment 2 Steve Dickson 2009-02-27 11:55:46 EST
The problem is the lockd, auth_rpcgss and nfs_acl modules are not getting loaded 
which should happen auto-magically when the nfs module is loaded...

Has something change in how modules are getting loaded or what modules
exist in initrd??
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2009-02-27 12:00:09 EST
initrd rootfs mount is only NFSv3 with nolock.  I don't know if something changed in mkinitrd or kernel to cause this.
Comment 4 Steve Dickson 2009-02-27 14:51:55 EST
I would think just adding the lockd, auth_rpcgss and nfs_acl modules
to the initrd would take care of the problem....
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2009-02-27 15:45:34 EST
They should be module deps to pull in lockd, auth_rpcgss and nfs_acl.

Warren -- can you look at what modules get included in the initramfs both with and without the additional modules being explicitly specified?
Comment 6 Warren Togami 2009-04-23 15:14:35 EDT
This seems to have gone away.
