Description Walter B Kulecz, PhD 2003-02-14 19:23:18 UTC
Description of problem:
updated kernel 2.4.18-24.i686 probes USB before SCSI assigning /dev/sda to
attached compact flash reader instead of device on SCSI controller.

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

How reproducible:
every boot.
fixed by booting 2.4.18-18.8.0.i686 instead

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install all updates
2.add USB compact flash reader on SCSI system
3. update to kernel 2.4.18-24.8.0.i686
Actual results:
no swap since real scsi device becomes sdb and partiton sda2 doesn't exist
would be panic if / not mounted by label

Expected results:
normal bootup with first drive on first SCSI controller as sda

Additional info:

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-02-15 10:35:04 UTC
this order is determined by mkinitrd not the kernel

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2003-02-18 17:36:09 UTC
This is fixed in newer versions of mkinitrd
