Description Robin R. Price II 2010-07-12 20:56:06 UTC
Description of problem:

More information regarding 'dracut' since mkinitrd is no longer used.

Example of it in use:

# mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-new.img
# dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL6u0

This will help customers better transition to dracut since we are no longer using mkinitrd and /etc/modprobe.conf for managing modules.
