Bug Fix Advisory mkinitrd bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1017-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-21
Last updated on: 2011-07-21
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated mkinitrd packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

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

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Prior to this update, modules and options contained in the configuration files
(*.conf) in the /etc/modprobe.d/ directory were ignored when generating a new
initrd image. This update resolves the problem by adding the configuration files
to the list of files checked for modules and options during the initrd image
creation. (BZ#564392)

* Prior to this update, the cryptomgr module was not installed in the initrd
image. As a result, because the Linux kernel versions 2.6.18-258 and later
require cryptomgr to be installed in the initrd image when using the dm-crypt
subsystem, it was not possible to decrypt any Linux Unified Key Setup (LUKS)
partition when dm-crypt was used. This update resolves the problem by adding
cryptomgr to the initrd image when dm-crypt is used so that decrypting LUKS
partitions now works as expected. (BZ#694534)

All mkinitrd users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
these bugs.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
