Re: Should installkernel be passing --dracut to new-kernel-pkg?

Hi,

/sbin/installkernel doesn't pass --dracut to /sbin/new-kernel-pkg, so a
make install from a kernel.org kernel tree tries to
invoke /sbin/mkinitrd rather than dracut.  Is that intentional?

Also, any ideas on why a dracut-generated initramfs image generated for
a kernel.org kernel tree would be so much larger than the Fedora kernel
one (same .config)?

12M /boot/initramfs-2.6.31.1-56.fc12.x86_64.img

Newer dracut versions will strip kernel modules automatically.
The old version only strips, if the executable bit is set.
