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



and that would do it for me also.  HD's are SCSI...  if I remember correctly without the scsi_mod module it can not detect and see the controllers thus seeing the drive(s)...  guess I'll take a look at doing a new mkinitrd and force it to include the scsi_mod module.

mkinitrd will allow you to force include additional modules.

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.
