Description Avi Kivity 2005-07-13 11:13:50 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.4; Linux) KHTML/3.4.1 (like Gecko)

Description of problem:
mkinitrd does not copy udev *.rules to the initrd, so if the finding the  
rootfs relies on udev rules, booting cannot proceed.  
I encountered this while making a bootable cdrom from fedora rpms, but there  
may be more scenarios. I don't think it can happen on a "normal" installation. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
mkinited ... 

Actual Results:  initrd does not contain /etc/udev/rules.d/*.rules; if the rootfs is 
on /dev/cdrom (or usb drive, or ...), the root filesystem cannot be mounted. 

Expected Results:  initrd contains /etc/udev/rules.d/*.rules

initrd doesn't use udev, and probably won't do so in the future.
