mkinitrd failed with message "no module raid0 found for kernel 2.6.9"
I've just installed Redhat 9.0 with raid (raid 1 for /boot partition and raid 5 for other partitions).
Now i'm trying to install the latest kernel: 2.6.9. I compiled it without any problem.
However when i tried to run mkinitrd, i received the following error message:
No module raid0 found for kernel 2.6.9...
I've tried to search for info about this problem, have found that such a bug was reported but doesn't seem to have a fix yet.
I've found a patch on another forum (ie: http://kerneltrap.org/node/view/2870...3e3d81f8b95285).
I was a bit reluctant to install this patch coming from i don't know where, but with no other solution and reading that the user accepted this answer i gave it a try... however the patching file is not correct:
patch: **** malformed patch at line 4: modName="sbp2"
So i'm stuck here,
anybody has any advice?
What can i try?
Thanks in advance for comments/advices...
i hope this doesnt sound ignorant, but you DO have modutils 3.0 or better compiled into your os, i hope. download and compile, if not.
and ensure all your raid options are set to Y before you bzImage etc...i had fits before i discovered setting most 2.5+ kernel options to Y was mandatory.
No it doesn't sound ignorant at all...
Regarding modutils, except if it comes with default Red Hat 9, i guess i don't have it.
Now, i haven't seen any version 3.0 on kernel.org... did u mean 2.3.0 ? if not any idea where i can find the 3.0 one? (i've only seen a reference to 3.0 version on buffalo distribution website...).
I'll also check the raid options in my kernel.
Thanks for your help,
According to the software requirement for 2.6.x kernels modutils is not needed anymore...
i just tried to re-compile with all the raid options included in the kernel, but still had the same error message when running mkinitrd...
My next try will be without raid... :(
