|guma||I remember I had similar problem like that with Fedora. It was ralated to LABEL and fstab. I don't remember know it was while back. But not sure if this is the same problem or 3ware RAID now|
|guma||It boots fine the initial 4.4 kernal that I have used to install|
|so__||KrnlKlink, I don't see the arcmsr driver, it apparently didn't make it into 2.6.18, dunno what redhat may have done with regard to that driver|
|jsharper||guma: yeah, once you upgrade your kernel to the latest 4.4 via yum update, you won't have the 3w-9xxx driver that supports the 9650se anymore. you'll have the same problem with c5 after installing with the driver disk after upgrading to the latest el5 kernel|
i've fixed it by rolling my own kernel by taking the official src.rpm and adding in a patch to the 3w-9xxx driver. since this is pretty involved, i've asked 3ware what they recommend for upgraded el kernels and they've said they will write up a KB article soon with instructions. haven't seen it yet.
|guma||jsharper: Ok thanx. So right now I am stock with old kernel?|
I tried to point to the original 3ware .ko. But that did not helped.
|jsharper||no, since it has to be recompiled for the new kernel|
|_Steve_||man cluster could be so much better|
|jsharper||do you boot from a 3ware raid?|
|Evolution||jsharper: there's absolutely no need to rebuild the kernel.|
you simply have to install the kernel-devel package, and rebuild the driver, then update the initrd
it's pretty simple.
|guma||Evolution: Does rebuilding drivers is as simple as ./configure; make?|
|Evolution||guma: depends on the driver|
I got you.
|Evolution||for 3ware's makefile, it looks at `uname -r`, so you need to edit the makefile to point do the updated kernel, if you're not already running it.|
|guma||Ok If I figure out the driver build. How do you install it|
I never did it before
|jsharper||evolution: would you recommend rebuilding the initrd by hand, or overwriting /lib/modules/<ver>/kernel/drivers/scsi/3w-9xxx.ko and then using mkinitrd?|
yeah, it makes sense to not rebuild the whole kernel.. but I was lazy and for me it was easier to just patch the .spec to apply a 3w-9xxx patch than to change their makefile to build against a specific non-running kernel
esp. since i boot off a 3ware raid and i need to be able to update and reboot into a new kernel+initrd that is nearly guaranteed to work since the box will be in a distant datacenter
|shorawitz101||are CentoOS-5 iso(s) available in DVD images?|
|Zathrus||shorawitz101: currently? No. Once CentOS5 is released? Yes.|
I'm kinda new to the whole Redhat way of doing things, I wanted to use a more recent kernel/modules because I found that that the stock one doesn't support my hardware but it seems the newer one does (tested on a gentoo distro)
|_Steve_||is there going to be a "Servercd" for 5?|
i really like the "Servercd" release
i'd love to see that, with the cluster bits included
|Zathrus||_steve_: eventually, but it took a couple weeks for the 4.4 CD. As for your wish -- feel free to roll your own!|
|NthDegree||Zathrus, I used a DVD image|
|Zathrus||nthdegree: some people whine about those.|
|NthDegree||Zathrus, I so do|
