insmod: error inserting "/lib/ext4.ko": -1 File exists
Last modified: 2013-07-31 19:13:36 EDT
Description of problem:
'insmod: error inserting "/lib/ext4.ko": -1 File exists' message is displayed on boot, and the boot is very slow. /etc/fstab content:
LABEL=/ / ext4dev defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
LABEL=SWAP-vda1 swap swap defaults 0 0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel -148 and -149; does not appear on -141

Can you please run:
bash -x /sbin/mkinitrd -f test.img $(uname -r) &> log
On an affected system and attach the resulting log file here?

Actually, IIRC this has been solved in the next kernel update (150.el5; at the same time mkinitrd was updated to -53 from -51); still, here's the log from that command.
Judging from the log file, this indeed is no longer happening, closing.
