mkinitrd --omit-network-modules support
Last modified: 2009-02-03 15:31:06 EST
i have added network module support to mkinitrd, because we needed it
for booting via nfsroot. I have changed the mkinitrd script and the
mkinitrd manpage. People can safely use --omit-network-modules to have
an initrd image without networking stuff. Maybe it will be integrated
in future versions of mkinitrd. Maybe many people endorse having
network stuff in their initrd. :)

network modules patch
I'm attaching the patch to the bug so we don't lose it.
Changing version to correct one. (test1 -> fc3test1, and some were filed as
test3 accidentally instead; but clearly must be fc3test1 given the date of filing.)
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Fedora Core 3 and Fedora Core 4 are no longer supported. If you could retest
this issue on a current release or on the latest development / test version, we
would appreciate that. Otherwise, this bug will be marked as CANTFIX one month
from now. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
Moving bug from version "fc3test1" to version "devel". Patch is still not
applied to "mkinitrd" in Fedora release 8.
This isn't in F9, any reason?
We do not have a --omit-network-modules option in F-10, but other then that we have network booting working in F-10, so I'm closing this.
