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:

Do not call dm_resolve_name on dmraidsets names, sometimes it fails, and it is
not necessary, this fixes the dmraid boot failure seen on some systems
(#476818).  Fix finding / by UUID or LABEL not working with newer kernels
(#480667).  Fix mkinitrd not supporting relatime fstab option for / (#296361).
Note that if you are impacted by any of these bugs, 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.    If
you do not have any bootable kernel at all, you can try to fix this by  booting
the install CD in to rescue mode and then do:  chroot /mnt/sysimage  <install
mkinitrd update>  <execute the commands above>
