Description RLX Technologies 2002-04-16 18:36:23 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.0 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020326

Description of problem:
mkinitrd --preload <module> is not functional

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the --preload option to mkinitrd

Actual Results:  The module specified is echoed. eg. PRE <module>

Expected Results:  An initial ramdisk should be created containing the modules
specified with --preload options.

Additional info:

Looking at the mkinitrd script I found the following:

note the 'exit 0'

            if echo $1 | grep '=' >/dev/null ; then
                modname=`echo $1 | sed 's/^--preload=//'`
            PREMODS="$PREMODS $modname"
            echo PRE $PREMODS
            exit 0

Realized I should leave this open until the fix gets built into a tree.
