Subject: [PATCH] Corrections to doc/en/genkernel.xml
Date: Mon, 06 Dec 2010 09:05:32 +0100
Hey there,


the current genkernel docs refer to variables and parameters that do not
exist any more.  Please consider applying the attached patch for me.

This table summarizes my changes:

  OLD                     NEW
  =============================================
  --no-initrdmodules      --no-ramdisk-modules
                          --all-ramdisk-modules

  --debuglevel            --loglevel
  --debugfile             --logfile

  DEBUGLEVEL              LOGLEVEL

Best,



Sebastian
