Description jee 1999-12-12 14:32:41 UTC
After upgrading to e2fsprogs-1.17-1 on RH6.1 mkinitrd no longer works. It
seems it is unable to create an ext2fs on a loopback device. The e2fsprogs
package originally distributed with RH6.1 works OK though.

Comment 1 Matt Wilson 2000-02-09 06:40:59 UTC
Should work with e2fsprogs-1.18-5 and mkinitrd-2.4.1-1.
