mkinitrd-3.2.6-1 RPM for ia64

From Updates for Red Hat Linux 7.1 for ia64

Name: mkinitrd Distribution: Red Hat Linux
Version: 3.2.6 Vendor: Red Hat, Inc.
Release: 1 Build date: Wed Sep 5 22:52:03 2001
Group: System Environment/Base Build host: boris.devel.redhat.com
Size: 818856 Source RPM: mkinitrd-3.2.6-1.src.rpm
Packager: Red Hat, Inc. <http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla>
Summary: Creates an initial ramdisk image for preloading modules.
Mkinitrd creates filesystem images for use as initial ramdisk (initrd)
images. These ramdisk images are often used to preload the block
device modules (SCSI or RAID) needed to access the root filesystem. In
other words, generic kernels can be built without drivers for any SCSI
adapters which load the SCSI driver as a module. Since the kernel
needs to read those modules, but in this case it isn't able to address
the SCSI adapter, an initial ramdisk is used. The initial ramdisk is
loaded by the operating system loader (normally LILO) and is available
to the kernel as soon as the ramdisk is loaded. The ramdisk image
loads the proper SCSI adapter and allows the kernel to mount the root
filesystem. The mkinitrd program creates such a ramdisk using
information found in the /etc/modules.conf file.

    add an option to put the kernel version number at the end of the module
    name and use install -s to strip binaries on the fly.
