HPVSA not installed in new kernel

April 1st my linux CentOS 7 kernel was updated from:

3.10.0-123.20.1.el7.x86_64

to:

3.10.0-229.1.2.el7.x86_64

 

It was an automated update by yum-cron. Today the system would not load properly during reboot.

 

I loaded the old kernel and it worked fine. I did a yum reinstall of the new kernel to see if I got any error messages:

 

dracut:Failed to install module hpvsa

 

hpvsa is the B120i driver. The system will not load without it.

 

Any CentOS users got it to work?

SUPPORTED KERNELS:
The kernels of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (AMD64/EM64T) supported by this by this binary rpm are:
3.10.0-123.el7 - Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7(AMD64/EM64T) and future errata kernels.

From the HP website. Do you think I am stuck with the "3.10.0-123"  release? I guess the latest update was not an errata release?

New driver for RHEL 7.1 released 6 apr.

You can download it from HP.

Thanks!

 

Will try kmod-hpvsa-1.2.12-112.rhel7u1.x86_64.rpm tonight.

So far no good with "yum install kmod-hpvsa-1.2.12-112.rhel7u1.x86_64.rpm":

Message from syslogd@grampositive at Apr  8 21:02:11 ...

 dracut:Failed to install module hpvsa

 

 

More fun:

# rpm -Uvh kmod-hpvsa-1.2.12-112.rhel7u1.x86_64.rpm

Tried a reboot and it  worked. The dracut errors were probably for the older kernels. Linux likes the error messages frugal.

rpm -e kmod-hpvsa-1.2.12-112.rhel7u1.x86_64.rpm

You need to trim off the .rpm as that is part of the package filename and not the name of the package itself. That is why it complained that the package isn't installed.

Hi,

 

I have this same issue. May I ask...did you boot into the previous kernel release (which loads) and then install the RPM there?

 

How do you get the new drivers installed onto a kernel that panics?
