Starting a new thread - it's my last day at work before two weeks
holiday, I felt like playing with dracut a bit.

On a test-system running 12.3:
1st attempt: Running dracut with the default options produced an
initrd of 27Mb, more than 4 times bigger than the initrd made by
mkinitrd. It took 50 seconds (mkinitrd took 10seconds).
2nd attempt: omitting a few modules created an initrd only 2.5times
bigger and in only 35seconds.
I'm working on figuring out what else to omit.
Ah, "--hostonly" helps a lot - that got me a 4.4Mb initrd in 13seconds,
about 30% smaller than with mkinitrd. The next thing is to see if
works. This build seemed to include a lot less stuff/modules than
mkinitrd. I guess I need to add some modules.
Problem - I need 'iscsi', which is supposedly a dracut module, but when
I try to build it, I get
E: dracut module 'iscsi' cannot be found or installed.
