Description Roland Kletzing 2009-05-15 18:00:04 EDT
Description of problem:
last week i configured multipath boot for a customer and found the init script to use nash minimalistic script parser on startup. i saw some command like "stabilized" inside and could not find any information for that. i got the sources for nash and take a look inside and it seems the manpage is badly outdated and nearly missing half of the builtin commands of nash.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

others need that information, too 

see http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/linux/kernel/1061004

btw, what is the "stabilized" command for and what does it do exactly (including options like --hash) ?

mkinitrd is a dead end at this point, RHEL-6 and later have moved to dracut.
