Mandrakelinux Update Advisory

Package name: mkinitrd
Advisory ID: MDKA-2004:038
Date: August 26th, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0

Problem Description:

A bug existed in mkinitrd where depmod-24 would generate a modules.dep file containing "\\\n" if there is more than one module listed as a dependency. Because of this, when mkinitrd is called, it will miss the dependencies of certain modules and as a result the modules that need to be loaded first will be loaded last and the kernel will complain about some missing symbols.

This problem only affects systems using the 2.4 kernel with SCSI devices. The updated packages are fixed to correct the problem.
