KMOD bug for FIPS?

Chris WareFeb 27 2024

I hope this is the correct place for this question issue. If not please let me know where to go to address.

I have the following kernel installed:5.15.0-203.146.5.1.el8uek.x86_64 and am trying to enable FIPS on the system.

Ive tried the latest kmod-kvdo-6.2.8.7-92.0.1.el8/vdo-6.2.9.7-14.el8 as well as previous versions kmod-kvdo-6.2.0.293-50.0.1.el8/vdo-6.2.0.293-10.el8; neither allowed FIPS to be enabled.

When I run fips-mode-setup --enable I get many lines such as this:

Kernel initramdisks are being regenerated. This might take some time.
libkmod: kmod_module_parse_depline: ctx=0x5609ecb81060 path=/lib/modules/3.10.0-1160.105.1.0.1.el7.x86_64//kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter/nf_reject_ipv4.ko.xz error=No such file or directory

realpath: weak-updates/veeamsnap.ko: No such file or directory
dracut: installkernel failed in module kernel-modules-extra

followed by more of the same and ending with the following line:

Installation of FIPS modules could not be completed.

What could be causing this behavior and how would I go about to fix it to allow me to enable FIPS on the system?

Thanks,

Chris
