Affected Products:
openSUSE Leap 42.3

An update that has 9 recommended fixes can now be installed.


This update for dracut provides the following fixes:

- Ensure responds properly to hostonly_cmdline option.
- Fix system shutdown when in initrd rescue mode. (bsc#1048698)
- Do not scan drivers for their reverse dependency as this causes too many
extra modules to be included into the initrd. (bsc#1037344)
- Make sure dracut looks for modules.builtin in the correct path when used
with the --kmoddir
option. (bsc#1048606)
- Ensure the ssh-client is usable by including the NSS plugin libraries
configured in nsswitch.conf. (bsc#1021846)
- Sync initramfs after creation to ensure it is properly written to disk
when using fadump and invoking crash right after service start.
- Don't detect crc32.ko as built-in, as in some kernel configurations it
may also appear as a module. (bsc#1054538)
- Enable systemd-based core dumps for initrd. (bsc#1054809)
- Add missing coreutils dependency for initrd macros. (bsc#1055492)
