RHEL5 module-init-tools: add --no-mkinitrd option to weak-modules
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:43 EST
Description of problem:
/sbin/weak-modules always calls mkinitrd when it thinks the boot path modules
have changed. Seems sane. But in our factory, we'll use DKMS to install
several modules, and *then* at the end, will remake the initrd. As it stands,
/sbin/weak-modules will create several initrds, and several new entries in grub,
which is somewhat confusing.
Please add an option --no-mkinitrd to /sbin/weak-modules to let DKMS avoid that
mkinitrd call. We'll mkinitrd ourselves later.
