Description Stephen John Smoogen 2001-08-18 15:31:37 EDT
Description of Problem:

Tried to install new RPMS after doing a fresh install of RC1. 
mount complained that /dev/cdrom was not a valid block device.
I checked to see if /dev/cdrom was correctly linked to /dev/hdd and that
the kernel saw /dev/hdd as a CDrom. (Both checked out fine)

Dmesg claimed that ide-fd.o was being loaded and when I check lsmod no
cdrom or ide-cd.o module was loaded.

Hand insmoding the modules allowed for the kernel to successfully mount the

Rebooted machine and problem re-occured. Need fix to add to
/etc/modules.conf before I can 'deploy' RC1 on wifes computer and other
test boxes.

msw, do we have to start putting all the IDE modules on initrds again?
Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-08-20 15:24:20 EDT
This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-21 03:41:38 EDT

is this a typo or deliberate ?
Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2001-09-03 13:42:20 EDT
Also, does it still happen after running "depmod -ae" ?
Comment 5 Stephen John Smoogen 2001-09-13 16:31:40 EDT
Ack sorry for the delay. The fix is to do a 'depmod -ae'

Tech support will need this in their knowledgebase.
Comment 6 Matt Wilson 2001-09-13 16:51:31 EDT
did we not get a modules.dep in the final i386 kernel?
Comment 7 Arjan van de Ven 2001-09-14 04:31:54 EDT
depmod -ae is run in %post of the kernel, so it should create one then.
Why it doesn't in this case is beyond my understanding.

I have not had this problem with any of the 7.2.9x betas. Please close
