Fedora 9 Update: mkelfimage-2.7-4.fc9



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-4448
2008-05-28 22:39:35
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : mkelfimage
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 2.7
Release     : 4.fc9
URL         : ftp://ftp.lnxi.com/pub/mkelfImage/
Summary     : Utility to create ELF boot images from Linux kernel images
Description :
mkelfImage is a program that makes a elf boot image for linux kernel images.
The image should work with any i386 multiboot compliant boot loader, an ELF
boot loader that passes no options, a loader compliant with the linuxBIOS elf
booting spec or with the linux kexec kernel patch.  A key feature here is that
nothing relies upon BIOS calls, but they are made when necessary.  This is
useful for systems running linuxbios.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This detects where to place the initrd in memory instead of naively hard-coding
to 8MB.  This makes it actually work with Fedora kernels.    Thanks to pjones
for fixing this.

ChangeLog:

* Wed May 21 2008 Peter Jones <pjones redhat com> - 2.7-4
- Add support for intelligent placement of the ramdisk.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update mkelfimage' at the command line.
