Fedora 10 Update: mkinitrd-6.0.71-6.fc10



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-5542
2009-05-28 07:01:01
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : mkinitrd
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 6.0.71
Release     : 6.fc10
URL         : git://git.fedoraproject.org/git/hosted/mkinitrd
Summary     : Creates an initial ramdisk image for preloading modules.
Description :
mkinitrd creates filesystem images for use as initial ram filesystem
(initramfs) images.  These images are used to find and mount the root
filesystem.

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

Fix mkinitrd creating a non booting initrd when parted-devel is installed and
the user has made configuration changes resulting in ld.so searching /usr/lib
before /lib (#502221)    Note that if you are impacted by this bug, then in
order to benifit from this update you need to regenerate your initrd like this:
KVER=######-####  mv /boot/initrd-$(KVER).img /boot/initrd-$(KVER).img.old
mkinitrd /boot/initrd-$(KVER).img $(KVER)    Where KVER should be set to the
kernel version-release for the non-bootable  kernel you are trying to fix. This
is the string between "initrd-" and ".img"  when you do a:  ls /boot    You can
find the version-release string for all installed kernels by doing:  rpm -q --qf
"%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}\n" kernel    This will print the full name-version-
release.arch for each installed kernel followed by the version-release.
