Can anyone tell me what kernel versions have support restored for
CCISS SCSI controllers? After upgrading to FC16 with yum, my DL380 G4 no longer boots
under either 3.1.0-7.fc16.i686 or 3.3.2-1-fc16.PAE kernels.
Under the 3.1.0 kernel, dracut at least reports "dracut Warning: No root device
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 found". The 3.3.2 kernel reports only "Kernel panic -
not syncing: Attempted to kill init!" which does not seem to be very informative to
the non-kernel expert.
That part is not very helpful to anyone really tbh. The interesting info happens before
Perhaps try booting with rdshell, and see if you can capture the whole dmesg.
Re-running "dracut -f" to rebuild the initramfs for either
kernel does not help. No change in the behaviro is observed.
Is cciss.ko ending up in the generated initramfs ? (lsinitrd will tell you)
II have seen bug report rhbz #754907 which may possibly be the same
problem. This supposedly has been fixed but in what kernels?
If you had that bug, it would have manifested as an oops.
