[Bug 108906] Re: kernel oops when module hpt366 is loaded


coco77, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  kernel oops when module hpt366 is loaded

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm not sure if this is a duplicate of Bug #84964
  I have 2 PATA disks attached to a PCI Highpoint Rocket 133 ATA controller card.
  These were previously labeled as hde and hdf under Edgy.
  The 2.6.20-15 kernel seems unable to find either of the disks attached to this card.
  After upgrading to Feisty the system would not boot, pausing just after something to do with IDE card module [hpt366]

  EIP: [<f0833022>] pci_bus_clock_list+0x22/0x30 [hpt366] SS:ESP 0068:df9b9d18
  udev-event[xxxx]: run-program: '/sbin/modprobe' abnormal exit

  before dropping to the busybox shell

  ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/-UUID- does not exist Dropping to shell!
  BusyBox v1.1.3 Built-in shell (ash)
  /bin/sh can't access tty; job control mode off.

  At the initramsf prompt

  modprobe ide-disk
  modprobe ide-generic

  don't find the CDROM attached to the motherboard and

  modprobe hpt366

  just hangs the system requiring a reboot.

  To summarise:  
  fstab has been updated and UUIDs assigned to all partitions. (which match UUIDs obtained running vol_id from Edgy LiveCD)
  /boot/grub/menu.lst has also been updated with consistent UUIDs.
  No new sdx entries have been added to /boot/grub/device.map
  There are no /dev/disk/by-uuid/ nodes (or hdx or sdx)

  Booting from the Feisty install CD produces the same problem: boot
  paused at /sbin/modprobe before booting without finding any HDDs.

  Adding the lines


  to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
  causes the boot to get slightly further 

  EIP: [<f0833022>] pci_bus_clock_list+0x22/0x30 [hpt366] SS:ESP 0068:df9b9d18

  FDC 0 is a post-1991 82077

  and dropping back to the busybox shell. Although I was able to find
  the CDROM with modprobe-generic.
