Kickstarting/ custom os and .modules.conf
I am new to 1) linux, 2) to linuxquestions so if I am posting this in the wrong place please bear with me.
Here is what I am trying to accomplish:
I have a system I kickstart with an almost standard version of RH9 2.4.20-8. The difference is that I have added an aacraid rpm that fixes a raid problem. I kickstart the machine and the install occurs properly booting to RH92.4.20-8 properly, with the aacraid package installed and a proper entry in modules.conf for the aacraid driver.
(alias scsi_hostadapter aacraid)
So then I attempt to add in my custom kernel rpm. This rpm as part of its %post processing creates a ramdisk image by using
mkinitrd -f myos.img mykernel
The mkinitrd command errors indicating that the aacraid module can not be found in the mykernel. Which is how I have set it up, because I want to use the original distributions raid driver.
Now as I see it there are two options ( and i am sure as is usually the case I have missed one, two or fifteen).
1- somehow indicate to the mkinitrd routine that there is another place to look for the aacraid module.
2- include the aacraid module into our kernel and have it installed along with mykernel*rpm.
Is it normal to try to cross distribute modules?
