What I mean by #3 is that when applying the only patch to the mkinitrd
source the build errors out with the old "Patch looks to already be
applied would you like to reverse it?" message. After looking at the
source and the patch at the same time it looks like the patch has
already been applied.=20
Thank you for the update on far along SuSE is to being a development
release. Currently I am about to start working on porting the install
script from Fedora 3 to SuSE 9.2. What procedure do I need to go
through to be able to check it once I am done?

This would probably be fixed when the release is being created.

Yes, 1.9.x for Fedora has an RPM for the 2.6 kernel, and SuSE will have=20
the same. This is something that should be fixed.

Not sure I understand what you mean.

aaa_base has the necessary functionality of chkconfig and initscripts.

Where did you find this patch? If it was in openssi/patches, then it was
automatically generated from the openssi/mkinitrd source as part of
building a mkinitrd RPM.
