Description Keith Moore 2005-08-28 20:49:06 UTC

Description of problem:
It is often necessary to pass additional parameters (i.e. --with-usb) to mkinitrd when installing a new kernel. This could be done more easily if new-kernel-pkg honored a MKINITRDOPTIONS variable which could be set in /etc/sysconfig/kernel. I've attached a simple patch which implements this.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install new kernel rpm.

A related request can be found in bug 171522 which could potentially use the
same sysconfig mechanism.

Comment 4 Peter Jones 2009-02-17 19:26:39 UTC
This should be handled with /etc/sysconfig/mkinitrd rather than through a mechanism like this.
