Description Sandro Mathys 2012-07-16 04:01:57 EDT
Created attachment 598389 [details]
dracut --M --force --verbose --debug 2> dracut.err

Description of problem:
dracut reports 'Dracut module "network" cannot be found.' even though it is installed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install -y dracut{,-network}
2. dracut --force -M
Actual results:
'Dracut module "network" cannot be found.' x4

Expected results:
New initramfs is built with the network module included

Additional info:
dracut.conf and 01-dist.conf are untouched. Our additional custom conf looks like this (note: we only really need nfsroot support from network module and there's no local disks in this setup whatsoever):
# Dracut modules to omit
omit_dracutmodules+="btrfs crypt dm dmraid dmsquash-live fcoe ifcfg iscsi lvm mdraid nbd"

# install local /etc/mdadm.conf

# install local /etc/lvm/lvm.conf
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2012-07-16 05:28:40 EDT
//etc/dracut.conf.d/10-ethz.conf@2(): omit_dracutmodules+='btrfs crypt dm dmraid dmsquash-live fcoe ifcfg iscsi lvm mdraid nbd'

The network module depends on the ifcfg module and you have forced dracut to omit this module.

I agree, that the error message could state that and will fix it.
