Severity: N/A

Details

Updated mkinitrd packages that resolve an issue are now available.

The mkinitrd utility creates file system images for use as initial ramdisk
(initrd) images.

These updated mkinitrd packages resolve the following issue:

* previously, when using the bindings_file configuration directive in
/etc/multipath.conf, mkinitrd failed to copy the bindings file from the location
specified in /etc/multipath.conf to the corresponding relative path inside the
initramfs image. This issue is now resolved and mkinitrd uses the bindings_file
configuration directive without problems.

All mkinitrd users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve this issue. (BZ#596134)
