Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 72169
/modules/module-info not found errors
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:46 EDT
Description of Problem:
I've installed both limbo-1 and limbo-2 successfully on this laptop, but I'm
having issues with null. I use pcmcia.img and pcmciadd.img from the null
distribution, and I can successfully boot up, specify language and install
medium. I am installing over the network, so right after anaconda downloads
netstg1.img, I am getting the following error:
failed to read /modules/module-info
Looking at other consoles, I am seeing this on Alt-F4:
(4) Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
(4) VFS: Can't find ext2 filesystem on dev loop(7,0).
This laptop doesn't have a CD-ROM, but I'm not sure that is relevant. The
pcmciadd.img floppy is still in the drive at the time this error occurs, and
apparently anaconda is accessing it.
I can reproduce this every time. Moreover, I've tried several install servers
just to make sure that this is not happening because of a fubarred image on
redhat.dulug.duke.edu. Same result -- dies right after downloading netstg1.img.
This is an older laptop I use for testing purposes. It's a P2-366 with 190Mb
RAM. It doesn't have a CD-ROM drive, so the only way I can install on it is via
the pcmcia card.
Those other errors are probably unrelated.
We've seen this issue as well.
