#97 Problem booting master node in FC3


Installation goes fine, but when re-booting with the
SSI 1.9.1 enabled kernel the following messages appear:

Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.
kbd_cmd[0]: bpa panic_hook
Instruction(i) BP #0 at 0xc0127720 (panic_hook)

The system is a Dell Dimension 8300, P4 with 1MB RAM.
I've been running FC3 on it with no problems for
several months. I did a clean install of FC3 before
installing OpenSSi.

    This is an installation bug. Re-run ssi-create then
    `mkinitrd --cfs` and ssi-ksync. Verify the kernel is
    booting the newest initrd image.

    That's exactly what I did.

    System hangs as described above - but - it's also impossible
    to boot up FC3. The links made in /var seem to be not
    correct und the file-system is reported as 'read-only'.

    I've got to do a complete new installation of FC3. I've
    learned to make an image of the partitions bevore.

    Is there someone out there, who's managed to install SSI for
    FC3 ever ?

    As there hasn't happened anything in the last 6 months, I
    doubt that there will be any action to SSI.

    We've got to burry it.

    We've had success installing 1.9.2-pre on FC3.

    that won't be your only problem - things such as http also
    panic the kernel... :-(

    I did resolve this issue as suggested by rogertsang on
    August 26th.. the installation script was building a broken
    initrd. I've been using SSI successfully since then but the
    lack of NFS support for FC3 (and some issues building a
    kernel driver for my hardware raid controller).. has
    convinced me to try out ROCKS for my cluster. Depending on
    my experience with it, I may or may not go back to OpenSSI.

    Going to close this bug. Install bug is fixed in 1.9.2pre.

    NFS fixes have been checked into CVS some time ago (probably
    after 1.9.2pre), and have been verified on the ssic users
    mailing list - NFS is functional.

    did you enable the openssi option in the clustring tab while
    compiling openssi cluster. for this to happen you have to
    select initrd option and also /dev filesystem.

    initrd will be in block devices tab when you do make menuconfig

    and /dev will be in filesystems. there will be seperate tab
    called clustering, just enable it and be cautious in
    selecting packages so that no problem occurs.
