IDE Cdrom not found after install
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:01 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
msw, do we have to start putting all the IDE modules on initrds again?
This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
is this a typo or deliberate ?
Also, does it still happen after running "depmod -ae" ?
Ack sorry for the delay. The fix is to do a 'depmod -ae'
Tech support will need this in their knowledgebase.
did we not get a modules.dep in the final i386 kernel?
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
