no freeramdisk? -> util-linux
I'm attempting to write support for scsidev at boot time in conjonction with
a fork of hwtools to create a new scsitools package that will provide only the
scsi stuff of hwtools and compile on non-i386 Debian architectures.
However, my scripts will eventually make use of freeramdisk which is not
available on all architectures. In fact, it is currently only provided by
loadlin on i386 :(( (see wishlist bug #49878).
I don't think it's worth creating a stand alone package for freeramdisk (which
is 3k) so the best package I found to move to is util-linux.
Do you agree with this proposal? It should go under /bin or /sbin (/sbin
preferably) because I need it early at boot time, before any partition (like
/usr) is mounted.
I will file a bug against loadlin & util-linux if I get a consensus on it.
Thanks in advance.
