Make updates less error prone
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:07 EST
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.
