Description Jon Masters 2007-02-21 12:32:02 EST
The /sbin/weak-modules script will always generate a new initrd (and throw it
away if it's not needed). Sometimes, this behavior is not desired and should be
disabled for specific invocations of the weak-modules script. This is especially
true when it is driven by an external program, such as dkms.

Suggest a new flag --no-initrd that causes no initrd to be created.
