alphaBootloaderInfo code fails to add an INITRD to aboot.conf file
Last modified: 2008-01-02 15:52:31 EST
Description of problem:
On Alpha, the code to add the "initrd=xxx" clause to the aboot.conf file
kernel boot command line is bad, leading to no clause being added when
one is required.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. do an install of F8 to Alpha
2. examine the resultant /etc/aboot.conf file
aboot.conf lines without an "initrd=xxx" clause
aboot.conf file lines with an "initrd=xxx" clause
A patch is attached that fixes the problem.
