Description Clemente Aguiar 2009-05-06 15:17:55 UTC
When can it expected for ext4 to be included in genkernel default configuration?

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Alex Anagnos 2009-07-11 22:38:14 UTC
ext4 went stable in 2.6.28 ( i think  )


invoke genkernel with --menuconfig
then enable ext4 manually.

add ext4 to the default initramfs

ext4 must be included in the MODULES_FS list in /usr/share/genkernel/defaults/modules_load too.
Comment 3 Alishams Hassam 2009-11-03 06:05:27 UTC
This fix is trivial. I can confirm for sure on amd64. Any idea when this will be incorporated? If maintainers really need a diff of the config I can provide.
Comment 4 Balwinder S Dheeman 2009-12-25 08:49:56 UTC
I attempted to include 'ext4' in MODULES_FS and even putting
a copy of ext4.ko in the /usr/share/genkernel/modules_load/,
but none worked either.

Should not it be as simple as that?

BTW, it was only first time I ever used genkernel.

This is done in git.
Comment 7 Timo A. Hummel 2010-06-14 01:37:42 UTC
Note that it might be necessary to not only include ext4 into /usr/share/genkernel/defaults/modules_load but also in the specific arch-directories, especially if you are on a amd64 platform.
Comment 8 Timo A. Hummel 2010-09-05 13:29:43 UTC
Push this please. In the recent 2 weeks, I bounced over this bug like 10 times (yes, I've installed quite *many* gentoo machines). Additionally, if you upgrade to a higher version of genkernel, it silently overwrites my configs. Please add something to /etc/genkernel.conf to allow me to specify additional modules.

This bug also exists for modules_load on ARM.
Comment 9 Andrew Evans 2010-12-14 02:06:40 UTC
What is holding this up? I'm getting tired of my machines not booting after genkernel updates. Time to chattr +i /usr/share/genkernel/arch/x86_64/modules_load I suppose...

Included in, closing.
