Description ulrich 2005-06-11 14:08:33 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
if a module failes to load in disklessrc loadmodules()
then disklessrc aborts with the following error:

disklessrc line 39 output e numeric value expected

in my case i tried a custom built kernel which has nfs compilied in,
so loading nfs module will fail, but the disklessrc should not abort.

the line 39 contains

return e;

should be written as

return $e;

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. build a custom kernel with nfs builtin
2. install kernel image and modules in diskless root
3. used updateDiskless to build initrd.img
4. install kernel vmlinuz and initrd.img in tftp dir
5..boot diskless client with new kernel image and initrd.img
