13:50 tfhartmann does any know know of a kernel parameter that can be passed to anaconda to load a module?  I've got an issue where I'm loading the CentOS 6.5 after PXE booting off Mellanox 40g interfaces, the installer starts, but doesn't load the module. I can drop to a shell and load it manually
13:51 tfhartmann thought I'd throw it out to the wild and see if anyone had any thoughts
14:02 pdurbin tfhartmann: hmm, nothing is jumping out at me at http://rhinstaller.github.io/anaconda/
14:02 pdurbin there's some modprobe stuff at https://github.com/rhinstaller/anaconda/blob/master/dracut/anaconda-modprobe.sh
14:02 tfhartmann yeah, been combing through that page, and a number of others hoping for some light at the end of the tunnel :p
14:04 pdurbin tfhartmann: maybe you can do the install off a "normal" interface and then switch to the Mellanox one later.

14:16 bene loadmodules=mod1,mod2,mod3 on the kernel command line maybe?
14:22 tfhartmann is there a loadmodules parameter? That would be awesome!
14:22 tfhartmann
14:22 bene it's not in anaconda though
14:22 bene it's a kernel parameter in grub/pxe land
14:23 bene so like: kernel /path/to/vmlinux loadmodules=mod1,mod2
14:23 bene in the pxe config
14:23 bene i may not be understanding where you're getting stuck
14:24 bene since you can pxe boot off the mellanox interface?
14:24 tfhartmann man that sounds exactly like where i'm getting hung up, I'll give it a try and report back.  :)
14:28 bene http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/web/faqs/boot-options.html <- search for loadmodules
14:28 bene i have no clue what fatdog is
14:29 bene maybe that's not legit at all, but it looks like linux to me
14:32 tfhartmann LOL I just finished a test using "waitdev" to see if that would work too
14:39 tfhartmann aww loadmodule=mlx4_en didn't help :/
14:43 pdurbin bene: you're fired
14:48 pdurbin ;)
14:53 pdurbin tfhartmann: I take it that's what you're using when you drop to a shell
14:54 tfhartmann yeah just doing a modprobe mlx4_en  to load the module from the shell
14:58 pdurbin tfhartmann: what about doing the install on another interface?
14:59 tfhartmann yeah, I think thats where I'm headed, do the build off a 1g interface then down it post kickstart :/
15:00 pdurbin yeah
15:01 pdurbin could ask some people who have that mellanox adapter what they do
