Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6-386

I own a Dell PowerEdge 1600SC with a LSI 1030ST controller and I can't see the attached disk with the latest Dapper kernel image revision, while wi th standard 6.06 version (2.6.15-23) I can mount the disk smoothly.

I can say that even with more recent kernels (2.6.17 on latest knoppix, for example) I cannot see the disk, while with Ubuntu 2.6.15-23 (server or desktop flavour) as said, it works.

Hi, we need "lspci -vvn" output to be able to debug this further.

btw, your drives are attached to the megaraid controller, not the 1030.

Ben Collins (ben-collins) wrote :

Kyle is looking into this and creating some test packages. Looks like some PCI ids got moved around to the wrong driver.

This is a regression in a dapper security update and should be fixed for the Dapper point release.

One-liner fix, doable for dapper.2.

Just upgrade from dapper-proposed to 2.6.15-51.63and now I've got a kernel panic. I attach the screenshot of the panic

Do you have linux-backports-modules installed as well? I suspect you'll need this installed by default. We may have to make sure upgrades work in this case for dapper.2 kernel.

Vide (vide80) wrote :

Ok, I was missing linux-backports-modules-server, once installed, the system booted up, and now is up & running with all the disks correctly detected. Thanks for the fix! :)

Martin Pitt (pitti) wrote :

Vide, that's more like a workaround. Thank you for testing!

So it seems that some modules are not shuffled between linux-image and linux-backports-modules properly. Upgrades must not break when l-b-m is not installed (which is the entire point of having a separate l-b-m).

Vide (vide80) wrote :

Ok, this seemed strange to me in fact... well, I'll wait for a linux-modules-server update in the proposed updates repo, let me know when there are news, it's a non-production machine so I can reboot it quite easily if you need more testing

Update from the kernel team regarding this bug? Ben?

Ben Collins (ben-collins) wrote :

Since this was caused by what was hoped to fix the problem (moving PCI id's), the regression appears to be worse than the fix. Reverting back to previous PCI id layout.

As a side note, the updated megaraid driver in linux-backports-modules-2.6.15 will hopefully fix this problem, without the regression. However, current build of the package has another bug preventing megaraid from being loaded.

Working on an updated package to test this from.

Please try using this package with 2.6.15-51-686 kernel:


Check for this line in dmesg:

Fusion MPT base driver 3.03.09

Martin Pitt (pitti) wrote :

Ben, doesn't this need a newer linux-source-2.6.15, too? I cannot find it at the URL you gave above.

Also, do you have the source package somewhere? I need to build amd64 packages.

Thank you!

Ben Collins (ben-collins) wrote :

No, you just need the linux-image2.6.15-51-686 from the archive. If you need source, it's available via git from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git (look for ubuntu/ubuntu-dapper-lbm)

Fabián Rodríguez (magicfab) wrote :

I am working on a test environment to check this, will provide feedback as I get it.

Fabián Rodríguez (magicfab) wrote :

When I try the package it complains about dependency on the -686 image. I am trying to help a customer test this but they only have a-server image installed. Can you provide a -server package ?

Martin Pitt (pitti) wrote :

Fabian, there is linux-backports-modules-2.6.15-51-server, too.

Fabián Rodríguez (magicfab) wrote :

I ran into another problem. After (mistankingly) trying to install the -686 package, I couldn' t seem to remove it. I had to do this:

1) sudo touch /lib/modules/2.6.15-51-686
2) sudo dpkg -r linux-backports-modules-2.6.15-51-686
You should get a FATAL error, however it will remove part of the package

3) sudo dpkg --purge linux-backports-modules-2.6.15-51-686
You should now get complete removal. Issuing this last command again will give an error about unexisting package confirming its complete removal.

We tried the proposed fix and it didn't work. I am waiting for a copy of the output of initial booting sequence, although it didn't get very far.

Marc also did the test on the LSI controller and ran into the same problem when RAID was actually enabled. Without RAID it works fine.
