Description Martin K. Petersen 2003-02-07 06:02:36 UTC
This is just a heads-up because you are likely to run into this at some point.

The recent errata kernels use dynamically linked CONFIG_SCSI and
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SD.  The anaconda mk-images.ia64 script doesn't handle the latter
being a module, so SCSI disks can't be accessed during install when a recent
kernel image is used.

Trivial patch: http://mkp.net/patches/mk-images.diff

Yep, this is already done in rawhide anaconda
