Description Zhang Yanmin 2007-01-22 08:20:29 UTC
Description of problem: I used rpm to install the latest kernel and it hanged when rebooting. The output: Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found. Try passing init=option to kernel Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-2.6.19-1.2912.fc7.ia64.rpm How reproducible: Everytime Steps to Reproduce: 1. Use yum to upadte mkinitrd on my FC6 ia64 machine. 2. Run #rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.19-1.2912.fc7.ia64.rpm 3. Reboot Actual results: Hanged. Expected results: Kernel boots well. Additional info: 1) I checked initrd.img and found there is an init script.
Comment 1 Prarit Bhargava 2007-01-22 16:35:12 UTC
Yanmin, could you attach the console log so I can see where the hang was? Or does the system not boot the kernel at all? P.
Comment 2 Zhang Yanmin 2007-01-23 03:37:06 UTC
Prarit, The system could boot kenel, but kernel couldn't find /init. So it looks like an initrd issue. I did an initial check of initrd.img and didn't find anything abnormal. I tried to capture log by serial port, but it didn't work. Below is something I copied from the console.

Comment 3 Zhang Yanmin 2007-01-29 09:08:09 UTC
I tried kernel-2.6.19-1.2914.fc7.ia64.rpm. Kernel hanged on one of my machine(Montecito+Fusion SCSI disk). Pls. see the attached log.

Comment 5 Zhang Yanmin 2007-02-12 09:03:39 UTC
Created attachment 147878 [details] New log of kernel 2.6.20-1.2922 panic I rebuilt kernel 2.6.20-1.2922 with patch of ata/ata_piix to convert GSI to irq. Then, rebuilt a new DVD image. kernel panic on my tige-4 Montecito machine. With the same vmlinuz/initrd, my Madison machine and Hitachi machine don't panic. My Hitachi machine is also Montecito. processor info: arch : IA-64 family : 32 model : 0 model name : Intel(r) Itanium(r) 2 Processor 1.6GHz with 24M L3 Cache for 533MHz Platforms revision : 5 archrev : 0 Tiger-4 Montecito machine processor info: arch : IA-64 family : 32 model : 0 revision : 4 archrev : 0
Comment 6 Zhang Yanmin 2007-02-12 09:10:28 UTC
Another difference between my Hitachi and tiger-4 is I disable multi-thread on hitachi and enable it on tiger-4, because hitachi booting becomes very slow if I turn on multi-thread.
Comment 7 Dave Jones 2007-05-15 20:25:41 UTC
is this reproducable with f7test4 ? There were a large number of mkinitrd fixes just before its release which may have helped.
Comment 8 Zhang Yanmin 2007-05-17 02:38:46 UTC
Dave, Sorry. I'm very busy in other tasks and have no time to check it. Yanmin
Comment 9 Doug Chapman 2007-12-18 16:30:21 UTC
This has been verified to be resolved on the F8 kernel.
