Description of problem:
Looks like we need to update the dracut.conf man page to accomodate
the new version of dracut we shipped in RHEL 6.5. Might need to update
dracut man page too.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It appears that the dracut.conf man page (not sure about dracut man page
itself) was not updated to reflect the new features. I noticed this
because I was looking for a way to make dracut always include certain
arbitrary files in the initramfs it builds (e.g., luks key files) and
I found such an option in the Fedora dracut.conf man page (a directive
called "install_items") which DOES work with dracut.conf in RHEL 6.5,
but which isn't in the man page there.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. Product
Management has requested further review of this request by
Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red Hat
Enterprise Linux release for currently deployed products.
This request is not yet committed for inclusion in a release.
# man dracut.conf
install_items+=" <file>[ <file> ...] "
Specify additional files to include in the initramfs, separated by spaces.
missing man page section for install_items is referenced in comment #0 so I'm moving this to VERIFIED. Please open another bug report(s) for other missing sections or options.
