Description baz 1999-10-25 12:38:20 UTC
Vanilla iso, no installer updates.

Boot from cd-rom - detects 2940U2W & disk as sda - second
disk on INI-9100UW as sdb. After installation boot fails
to load root - driver modules are now loaded INI-9100 before
AIC-7xxx (thus swapping the disks).

/etc/modules.conf reads

alias scsi_hostadapter aic7xxx
alias scsi_hostadapter1 initio

I changed this to read

alias scsi_hostadapter0 aic7xxx
alias scsi_hostadapter1 initio

and recreated the initrd image. It now loads the AIC-7xxx
driver first.

This is fixed in the mkinitrd in Raw Hide.

If you'd like to work around it, change the calls to sort
in mkinitrd from:

sort -u


LC_ALL=C sort -u

(the en_US locale is broken...)
