RE: [linux-lvm] file descriptor 3 left open



Uncompressing Linux booting the kernel

File descriptor 3 left open

Thank you, you lead me to the reason why it was failing.  I had to run mkinitrd --with=cciss to load the scsi adapter.
 
The file descriptor left open messages are just indications of files being left in open state?
 
Thanks again!

What do you mean by "not working", the rpm command seems to think the files are installed... Take a look in /boot/grub/menu.lst and see if the kernel is in there and it is the default to boot (default = 0 for the first kernel listed)

Thanks, but that looks okay to me.
Not working:

Any ideas?

IIRC, these are merely informative messages saying that, "Hey, the person who called me forgot to close some of their file descriptors, like they were suppose to. But don't worry, I'll close them for you."

That would have been too long though, so I think they chose a more cryptic message.

As far as your kernel installation problem, I'm not sure what's wrong there...

You could 'rpm -q kernel' (or rpm -qa | grep kernel) to see if it is installed. If it is, you could 'rpm -ql kernel-<the version> | grep boot' to see if the image was correctly installed...

I keep seeing "file descriptor 3 left open" at boot after the initrd is loaded.  The systems boots to the 2.6.9-22.0.1 kernel and works fine.  I have ran fsck against all filesystems however the error messages still appears.  I noticed that when I run system-config-lvm these errors are more predominant.

I recently installed the new kernel 2.6.9-22.0.2 but the system does not find kernel at boot.  I think the file descriptor messages are a symptom to some greater problem.  Please help.
thank you!
