Upgrade to 7.3 made my machine panic during boot.

Yikes! Hard to believe this has been in there so long. Almost the same fix applied:

  rootdev=$(awk '/^[ \t]*[^#]/ { if ($2 == "/") { print $1; }}' $fstab)

Let me (ewt@redhat.com -- mail me directly) know if you see any problems with
this alternate fix.

I got so excited with this bugly I fixed it before checking bugzilla. Zoinks. 
Follows is alternate patch with less cruft.

Comment 6 Pete Zaitcev 2002-08-06 23:24:03 UTC
mkinitrd-3.4.20-1 seems to work fine, installs on 7.3 fine
(I did rpm -U).
