Here it is, dracut-0.3!

Thanks for your efforts, this is excellent.

We've started using it for OLPC's F11 spin, including our own modules to
implement OLPC features. So much nicer than what we had before!

However, the spec file already pulls in a lot of dependencies, things
like device-mapper and cryptsetup which we won't need. Especially for
XO-1 we need to work to keep images small (1GB hard disk).

Is there any chance that this could be split up, and the more exotic
dependencies moved into subpackages?


The idea is to pregenerate a generic initrd and package it in an rpm and deliver it together with the kernel. There should be no need to generate the initrd on an X0-1 itsself.

Read the dracut manpage. You could explicitly set the modules you want to use and omit those, you know you will never use.
