kernel-module version mismatch in boot.img
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:39:37 EST
While attempting to upgrade a 5.2 system to 6.0, the
installer has a problem loading the necessary SCSI module.
Switching over to CTL-ALT-F3 showed the following:
*found driver for NCR 53C8XX PCI
*running: /bin/insmod /bin/insmod /modules/ncr53c8xx.o
Ok, fair enough. Let me switch to CTL-ALT-F2 and try it
bash# /bin/insmod /modules/ncr53c8xx.o
/tmp/ncr53c8xx.o: kernel-module version mismatch
ncr53c8xx.o was compiled for kernel version 2.2.5-14BOOT
while this kernel is version 2.2.12-2.6.0BOOT
There appears to have been an oversight when constructing
the installer image. Could someone please see to making an
image available with updated modules? It is rather
important that I be able to load SCSI modules as I can't see
the root partition without it.
This might also be the place to suggest a white paper on
installer disk construction be added to your collection. As
there's no READMEs available in the source, such a document
would be very helpful.
