Summary: initrd: linuxrc.config with wrong UpdateDir
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.2
Version: Final
Platform: All
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.2
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.0.17)
Gecko/2009122200 SUSE/3.0.17-0.1.1 Firefox/3.0.17

The initrd file of 11.2 contains a linuxrc.config file with
wrong UpdateDir path (pointing to 11.1)

http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.2/repo/oss/boot/i386/loader/initrd
http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.2/repo/oss/boot/x86_64/loader/initrd

This breaks DUDs (driver update disks).

Workaround:
For now in can be prevented by adding "updatedir=/linux/suse/i386-11.2"
to the kernel command line.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. get initrd:
wget
http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.2/repo/oss/boot/i386/loader/initrd
2. extract initrd:
zcat initrd | cpio -id
3. Look at linuxrc.config (Line: "UpdateDir:")
cat linuxrc.config
Actual Results:
# cat linuxrc.config
KernelPCMCIA: 1
UseUSBSCSI: 1
Product: openSUSE
UpdateDir: /linux/suse/i386-11.1
MemLoadImage: 327680

Expected Results:
# cat linuxrc.config
KernelPCMCIA: 1
UseUSBSCSI: 1
Product: openSUSE
UpdateDir: /linux/suse/i386-11.2
