Summary: Network-booting initrd builder
mkinitrd-net allows you to build initial ramdisk images (initrds) suitable
for use with Etherboot and other network-booting software.  This package
contains two main utilities: mkinitrd-net (to build an initrd containing a
specified set of network-card modules) and mknbi (to generate
Etherboot-usable NBI images from a given kernel and initrd).  It also
contains a helper script mknbi-set which will maintain sets of initrds to
match all your currently-installed kernels.

mkinitrd-net uses code from the uClibc, busybox, and Etherboot

  - really build busybox with uClibc (shrink initrd, patch10, 11)
  - only include wlanctl in initrd if required (shrink initrd, patch12)
  - busybox handles both 2.4 and 2.6 modules, 
      don't need to add static insmod (shrink initrd, redo/merge patch5,7)

* Mon Feb 23 2004 Stew Benedict <> 1.10-12mdk
  - another pass at getting mknbi-set to work to build 2.4 or 2.6
  - images, regardless of which kernel is booted (#8216, patch7)

  - af_packet patch was borken - redo (patch1)

  - 2.6 kernel support (patch5)
  - handle integrated af_packet (added to patch1) (Francisco Javier Felix)
* Mon Feb 02 2004 Stew Benedict <> 1.10-9mdk
  - pass devfs=mount as default argument when making nbi, since
  - client isn't picking up etherboot kernel-cmdline
* Mon Dec 22 2003 Jean-Michel Dault <> 1.10-8mdk
  - revert changes, will try to integrate my modifications with the original
    author's work.
* Sun Dec 21 2003 Jean-Michel Dault <> 1.10-7mdk
  - use mknbi 1.4.3 so we're compatible with latest etherboot and rom-o-matic
    images.  This release also fixes a serious bug in mkelf-linux where initrds
    larger than 1 MB do not work.
  - add memcmp patch since this function is missing from gcc 3.3.2 (weird!)
  - add nfsroot override to udhcp to be able to specify an argument to
    the kernel to boot from a different nfs server. This is mandatory
    in case there's a central dhcp server that we don't control, like most
    big organizations. This will also enable booting off a FAT32 partition
    or DiscOnChip, with "loadlin vmlinuz initrd=initrd.img nfsroot=whatever".
  - update to busybox 1.00-pre4, with integrated udhcp (fixes the extra
    space in variables problem)
  - use uClibc from contribs to build instead of the bundled one that doesn't
    work. busybox+udhcp should be about 200K, *not* over 1 meg!
  - move wlanctl to its own package so we save ramdisk space, since most
    installations do not use Xterminals over wireless links
* Fri Dec 19 2003 Stew Benedict <> 1.10-6mdk
  - remove old /tftpboot link
  - new dhcpd.conf.etherboot.include - keeps new etherboot 
  - from crashing dhcpd server - patch3
* Thu Jul 24 2003 Götz Waschk <> 1.10-5mdk
  - fix buildrequires
* Fri Mar 28 2003 Stew Benedict <> 1.10-4mdk
  - BuildRequires, distriblint
* Mon Mar 10 2003 Stew Benedict <> 1.10-3mdk
  - seems nfs is integrated into kernel now - deal with this scenario
  - [BUG 3003] - patch1, update uCLibc so it builds - patch2
* Mon Oct 21 2002 Stew Benedict <> 1.10-2mdk
  - patch for ppc build, don't build the nbi's by default
* Tue Aug 06 2002 Stew Benedict <> 1.10-1mdk
  - changes from Michael Brown (drop patch0 now):
  - Support for new binary etherboot.nic-dev-id structure
  - Added --kernel option patch from Stew Benedict at MandrakeSoft
  - Only try to use sudo if we are not already root
* Sun Jul 28 2002 Stew Benedict <> 1.9-2mdk
  - requires binutils
* Thu Jun 20 2002 Stew Benedict <> 1.9-1mdk
  - first Mandrake release 
  - use make rather than %make (-j2 triggers error)
  - patch mknbi-set to do optional single kernel/module
  - thanks to Michael Brown <>
* Wed Jun 05 2002 Michael Brown <> 1.9-1fs
  - Modifications to allow DHCP, TFTP and NFS servers to be separate machines.
