It's working for me on all of the systems I'm tried it, so I'm going to try switching a couple of servers at work over to using it. But none of them have anything particularly complex (no net boots, for example) so I don't know how much of a test case they'll be :)
I'm still trying to figure out why my dracut init thingy isn't working
right. If I use the init thingy, I can't su to root from a user. If I
don't use the init thingy, I can su just fine. By the way, I boot the
exact same kernel either way I boot.
So, the fix doesn't seem to work for me and I have no plans of using
I am only responsible for what I said ... Not for what you understood or
how you interpreted my words!
Miss the compile output? Hint:
