FC Development on s390 using Hercules



Hi,

Following some other "useless but fun" stuff, I've been trying to get
the s390 FC Development tree installed using Hercules, mainly as a way
to test and clean up the hercules package.

The 3.04.1-2.fc6 package that just got rebuilt in Extras Development
(not yet pushed) works pretty much out-of-the-box, one just needs to
follow the quick instructions found in the README.fedora file.

Here is my current issue : I get the kernel to boot, the system seems
to come up, and I even suspect the network setup questions to be part
of the installation, woohoo! But...

After I enter all the network configuration (ctc, etc. it's all in
README.fedora), Hercules keeps outputting this line over and over, once
every few minutes :

request_module: runaway loop modprobe char-major-4-1
request_module: runaway loop modprobe char-major-4-1
request_module: runaway loop modprobe char-major-4-1
request_module: runaway loop modprobe char-major-4-1
request_module: runaway loop modprobe char-major-4-1

I've tried "modprobe char-major-4-1" on an i386 FCdev system and got
"FATAL: Module serial not found.".

Could there currently be a bug in the install process for s390? If
anyone wants to test and debug it, that hercules packages is in pretty
good shape and will get anyone started in no time... time to have fun
with your own (virtual) mainframe! ;-)
