Description Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-06-03 18:24:01 UTC
mkinitrd calls install which is located in /usr/bin and
therefore possibly unavailable.

Comment 1 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-06-03 22:07:59 UTC
Thank you for your suggestion. It has been noted and will be
considered for future versions of mkinitrd.

Comment 2 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-09-25 16:30:59 UTC
Latest mkinitrd uses cp instead of install.  Should now work fine
when /usr is not available.
