Thanks for this!

"tar xzf dracut-$version.tar.bz2"

This won't work. z means 'this is a gzip formatted archive'. The letter
for bzip2 is j, so you could do:

"tar xjf dracut-$version.tar.bz2"

but it's actually a lot less trouble to just do:

"tar xf dracut-$version.tar.bz2"

which auto-detects the archive type. It's much easier to just let it be
handled by autodetection, and only bother specifying the archive type
manually if the autodetection trips up.

Haha, 'ken lee entries' needs to go into common usage :)
