Feature #310491, revision 1
Title: Add dracut to openSUSE

openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Luis Medinas (lmedinas)

Dracut is suppose to be a replacement for the old initrd tools like mkinitrd.

From the project description, dracut is an initramfs infrastructure. Unlike
previous initramfs systems, Dracut aims to have as little as possible
hard-coded into the initramfs.

It contains specific configuration files for init drivers and includes plymouth
support. Dracut advantage seems to be a modern replacement to generate initrd
and it's suppose to be easy to use/manage.
