Mandrakelinux Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: mkinitrd
Advisory ID: MDKA-2004:018
Date: April 8th, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A problem in mkinitrd would cause it to fail when devfs is not in use. This problem, while still creating an initrd, would cause the system to attempt to create device files if booted without devfs, which would lead to segfault due to bug in dietlibc.

The updated packages have been patched to correct the problem.
