[openFATE 317846] Drop mkinitrd in favor of dracut
Feature changed by: Olaf Hering (olh)
Feature #317846, revision 4
Title: Drop mkinitrd in favor of dracut

- openSUSE Distribution: New
+ openSUSE Distribution: Done
Priority
Requester: Mandatory

Requested by: Michal Marek (michal-m)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Dracut has been successfully integrated into the distribution, so it
makes little sense to maintain two alternatives. Also, dracut is being
used in SLE12, where it has received lots of testing and fixes.

Discussion:
#1: Per Jessen (pjessen) (2014-08-20 08:51:30)
Is dracut able to create an initrd for booting with iscsi root now?
Last I tried it didn't work at all.

#2: Michal Marek (michal-m) (2014-08-20 13:37:18) (reply to #1)
Please try the package from Factory. There have been lots of fixes in
the iscsi module and elsewhere.

+ #3: Olaf Hering (olh) (2015-01-19 15:43:22)
+ I think it is done. Even if dracut still has its flaws...
