Taeho,
Quite a few times on number of different boxes.  Does the machine you are installing on boot with just the OS installed boot?  Once you get the OS installed could run a:
# lspci

Dear All.
 
Happy 2007 everyone!
 
Has anyone successfully run OpenSSI 1.9.2 on a hardware with a SATA HDD?
 
I have succesfully installed the OpenSSI but once I reboot the system, it halts with the following messages
 
mkrootdev: uuid .... not found
mount special device /dev/root does not exist
ERROR: mounting root file system failed.
Unable to continue. halting.
RTNL: asserting failed at net/ipv4/devinet.c (944)
RTNL: asserting failed at net/ipv4/devinet.c (944)
RTNL: asserting failed at net/ipv4/igmp.c (1220)
RTNL: asserting failed at net/ipv4/igmp.c (1193)
RTNL: asserting failed at net/ipv6/addrconf.c (1977)
System halted.
 
It looks like the ata_piix.ko module included in the OpenSSI kernel package is quite old. (in comparison to the one found in the orignal OS - CentOS 4.4 with kernel 2.6.9) I tried recompiling the module with newer driver sources, but it hasn't been successful. There simply are too many files that I have to change, and I am no expert at tuning H/W drivers...
 
If someone is running OpenSSI on a SATA HDD, are there anything special you have done?
Any tips and advices will be appreciated!
 
Thank you in advance,
 
Taeho
