#236 closed defect (fixed)

unrecognizable initrd magic on openSuse 10.3

Reported by: ppazera Owned by: bruno
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.2.5
Component: mindi Version: 2.2.4
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc:

Description

proposed fix is to replace one line in /usr/sbin/mindi:

local lcMagicInitfs=" initramfs..."

more details:

was using v1.2.4-r1532 from mindi-1.2.4-1.suse10.2

and getting

FATAL ERROR. Filesystem UNSUPPORTED not supported for initrd image. Terminating.

log file:

... Call GetInitrdFilesystemToUse?() with parameter /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22.13-0.3-default to get filesystem to use for initrd.

GetInitrdFilesystemToUse?(): called with parameter: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22.13-0.3-default.\n GetInitrdFilesystemToUse?(): gzip magic found at lvOffset 8322.\n GetInitrdFilesystemToUse?(): Filesytem to use for initrd is UNSUPPORTED.\n

FATAL ERROR. Filesystem UNSUPPORTED not supported for initrd image. Terminating. ...

then did:

dd ibs=1 skip=$lvOffset if=$lvKernelImage obs=1M 2>/dev/null | gunzip -c 2> /dev/null | strings > /tmp/mindi-unupported-magic

grep ramfs /tmp/mindi-unupported-magic

and the results were:

<6>Unpacking initramfs... ramfs ACPI: Override [%4.4s-%8.8s] from initramfs - tainting kernel

so it looks like " initramfs..." magic should cover both old and new signatures
