Description Pierre Ossman 2005-06-16 13:06:59 EDT
Every other update of mkinitrd causes the system to break. Usually booting up on
a rescuedisk and re-running mkinitrd solves the problem. (The latest I ran into
being that /initrd was killed causing pivot_root to go poof).

What I'd like to see is a trigger in the mkinitrd rpm that re-runs mkinitrd for
all initrd images found on the system.

That won't work; nash and the kernel are very closely coupled.  Only certain
versions work with certain kernels, and vice versa.
