Description Glen Ogilvie 2013-06-14 14:52:53 CEST
Description of problem:


is missing the logic to load the kernel module.  The init scripts in Mageia 2 did this.  

It needs to do something like:

modprobe -q iscsi_tcp

Suggested solution:


Index: open-iscsi.service
--- open-iscsi.service  (revision 443049)
+++ open-iscsi.service  (working copy)
@@ -5,6 +5,8 @@
+ExecStartPre=/usr/sbin/modprobe -q iscsi_tcp
+ExecStopPost=/usr/sbin/modprobe -r iscsi_tcp

I can commit this change, if that's OK with the package maintainer, as I have access.

Comment 2 Oden Eriksson 2013-07-02 14:35:18 CEST
fixed with open-iscsi-2.0-872.2.1.mga3 + open-iscsi-2.0-872.3.mga4
Comment 3 David Walser 2013-07-02 16:35:26 CEST
Thanks Oden.


The open-iscsi service would not start successfully in Mageia 3, as the kernel
module needed by the service was not loaded.  This has been corrected.


Updated packages in core/updates_testing:

from open-iscsi-2.0-872.2.1.mga3.src.rpm

Glen can you see if this fixes it for you please and let us know which release and architecture you tested with. Thanks.
Comment 5 Glen Ogilvie 2013-07-04 10:37:26 CEST
Tested on Mageia 3, x86_64.  Confirmed working.

Resolution: (none) => FIXED

Comment 6 claire robinson 2013-07-04 10:40:06 CEST
It needs to be tested i586 too before it can be validated and pushed to updates before the bug is closed :)

Resolution: FIXED => (none)

Comment 7 Glen Ogilvie 2013-07-04 12:35:45 CEST
I thought after clicking closed that maybe I shouldn't have.  Sorry.  I can fire up a i586 vm in the weekend and test iscsi works if need be, although based on what has changed, I think this fix will apply to both.   i586 does not have different kernel module names, and all the fix does is load the right kernel module on startup.

Resolution: (none) => FIXED

Comment 8 claire robinson 2013-07-04 12:45:54 CEST
re-opening again :D

Each arch of an update candidate needs to be tested before it can be validated. The rpm's for i586 are not the same ones used by x86_64 so the only way to know it works is to try it. The only time this isn't the case really is for noarch packages, but even then it's useful to check they are present and installable/updateable from either repository.

You can see our validation process here if you like:

I included this update in the list of 'easy bugs' for new QA testers but none have ventured forward yet :\ Feel free to check it i586 too if it's not done by the time you get to it Glen, thankyou.

Resolution: FIXED => (none)
