gumaI 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
fozzmooTOPIC!!
gumaIt 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
jsharperguma: 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.
gumajsharper: 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.
jsharperno, since it has to be recompiled for the new kernel
_Steve_man cluster could be so much better
jsharperdo you boot from a 3ware raid?
Evolutionjsharper: 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.
gumaEvolution: Does rebuilding drivers is as simple as ./configure; make?
Evolutionguma: depends on the driver
guma3ware 9650SE
I got you.
Evolutionfor 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.
gumaOk If I figure out the driver build. How do you install it
I never did it before
jsharperevolution: 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
Evolutionjsharper: mkinitrd
jsharperthanks
shorawitz101are CentoOS-5 iso(s) available in DVD images?
Zathrusshorawitz101: currently? No. Once CentOS5 is released? Yes.
shorawitz101ah, thx
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!
_Steve_*nod*
NthDegreeZathrus, I used a DVD image
:S
Zathrusnthdegree: some people whine about those.
NthDegreeZathrus, I so do
:P
