Description Dennis Edmonds 2001-11-21 16:35:22 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20010901

Description of problem:
When booting with the 2.4.9-13.i686 init will not fsck the root filesystems
properly.  It reports "Warning...fsck.ext3 for device /dev/rd/c0d0p4 exited
with signal 11.  Give root password for maintenance."  Manual fsck of the
filesystem also fail with a signal 11.  I have tried ext2 as well, but I
have only experienced the same result.

The only kernels this occurs with are the 2.4.9-7 and 2.4.9-13 i686. 
Everything works perfectly with 2.4.7-10.i686.  The i386 version of the
2.4.9 kernels seem to work fine as well, but I these do not support all of
the memory I have in my system (>1GB.)

The system is using the DAC960 module and has an AcceleRAID 352 controller
with hardware RAID5.  It is patched with the latest BIOS, firmware, etc
from Mylex and Asus (the motherboard) and is a Pentium4 1900.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a system with an AcceleRAID 352 and RAID5
2. Boot with kernel 2.4.9-13.i686
3. Repeat


Actual Results:  Warning...fsck.ext3 for device /dev/rd/c0d0p4 exited with
signal 11

Give root password for maintenance:

Expected Results:  Should continue booting
