Re: FC3 SMP builds do NOT contain ext3 drivers in the build!!!!

Cool.


I've had a look at the contents of the initrd for kernel-2.6.9-1.681_FC3 vs. kernel-2.6.9-1.681_FC3smp.

kernel-2.6.9-1.681_FC3smp is missing the following modules:

Only in initrd-2.6.9-1.681_FC3/lib: sata_promise.ko
Only in initrd-2.6.9-1.681_FC3/lib: scsi_mod.ko
Only in initrd-2.6.9-1.681_FC3/lib: sd_mod.ko

Also, the following lines are missing in init:

-echo "Loading scsi_mod.ko module"
-insmod /lib/scsi_mod.ko
-echo "Loading sd_mod.ko module"
-insmod /lib/sd_mod.ko
-echo "Loading libata.ko module"
-insmod /lib/libata.ko
-echo "Loading sata_promise.ko module"
-insmod /lib/sata_promise.ko

That explains why kernel-2.6.9-1.681_FC3smp doesn't boot on my system.

So, I guess I need to re-build the initrd or wait for a new kernel release that fixes this.

R.
