View Full Version : [ubuntu] mkinitrd: Cannot determine SCSI module

May 14th, 2008, 10:44 PM
I've compiled custom kernels for my Ubuntu servers and everything has been happy for a while. I go to do a few upgrades today and find that mkinitrd won't build me a new initrd image:
$ sudo mkinitrd -o /boot/initrd.img-
/usr/sbin/mkinitrd: Cannot determine SCSI module So I start looking at mkinitrd and find it complains about this because it can't find /proc/scsi. Fair enough, it doesn't exist on my system because I'm already running The kicker is about 100 lines later you see this:
# New kernels don't list the scsi drivers in /proc/scsi No kidding! So why does mkinitrd error out if it has a work around a few lines later? Any thoughts on a work around so I can get to the work around?
