Fedora 20: linux Driver Disk Version 3 format support ?


Hi,

Assumption: Fedora 20 supports Driver Disk Version 3 formats.

I did driver disk packaging and created an ISO(this is a third party driver for block device) for fedora 20, and wrote it to a USB device. During fedora 20 installtion emphasized textI have tried following options as the boot arguement but it is not even prompting for driver disk (as in FC 16 which pops a dialog box “do you have a driver disk” when “linux dd” is provided as boot arguments.)

inst.dd=/dev/sda
inst.dd=hd:/dev/sda
inst.dd=sda

But none of these triggered prompting the driver disk pop up.

Could anyone please help.
Regards/Mahesh

What is the actual language one should use for inst? I'd assume this label if /dev/sdb1 or such doesn't work. I get the feeling you don't mean sda.

"On F20 and later the driver disk support uses a text mode interface, not a popup and most of the DD work has been focused on RHEL7 so there will be differences. On F20 you need to either user a device with OEMDRV label or pass the device to inst.dd="
