Description David Sainty 2001-10-29 13:43:10 EST
Description of Problem:
w/ 2.4.9-7.5 kernel loaded w/ install image (RDR), I mount /dev/dasda1 (/)
and chroot - to install a new kernel.

rpm -ivh <new kernel rpm> works;  mkinitrd fails since loop.o is required.
loop.o cannot be insmod'ed because:

bash-2.05# /sbin/insmod /lib/modules/2.4.9-7.5/kernel/drivers/block/loop.o
/lib/modules/2.4.9-7.5/kernel/drivers/block/loop.o: unresolved symbol
/lib/modules/2.4.9-7.5/kernel/drivers/block/loop.o: unresolved symbol

retry with 2.9.7-9.1 or 2.9.7-13
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2001-11-05 06:35:14 EST
oops, meant 2.4.9, of course :)
Comment 3 Karsten Hopp 2001-11-13 07:30:49 EST
You need to do the insmod before you chroot ! The modules of the -BOOT kernel
are not copied into the chroot directories.
insmod loop.o works for me.
