# Dracut is the command that creates boot loading image. Any version
will do the trick

... Nope sorry ... needed latest version ... to support this --omit- drivers syntax.

Prior version on 6.2 gave syntax ... aka ...

# rpm -qa | grep dracut

dracut-kernel-004-256.0.1.el6.noarch
dracut-004-256.0.1.el6.noarch

# dracut --omit-drivers lpfc initramfs-$(uname -r)-no-lpfc

Unknown option: --omit-drivers

Usage: /sbin/dracut [OPTION]... <initramfs> <kernel-version> Creates initial ramdisk images for preloading modules Received on Tue Jan 22 2013 - 14:38:49 CET
