mkinitrd-cd can now also boot from USB sticks/harddisks - rename ?
[Please CC me in replies, I am currently not subscribed to -devel.]
I am currently uploading mkinitrd-cd 0.29, which now supports booting
from USB CD-ROM/DVD drives, USB sticks and USB harddisks. This means
that it is no longer only an all-in-once package for creating live,
bootable CD-ROMs but now also for creating bootable USB sticks (although
mkbootimg does not completely automate this in the same way as for El
Torito boot images).
So the question is: should I rename the package to something like
mkinitrd-live or something like that (mkinitrd is already taken :) ). Or
would it be the best to just integrate it with mkinitrd to have a
one-does-all package (I'm not sure of that) ? The description in the
control file is already up-to-date.
This primarily concerns all current users of mkinitrd-cd: would a name
change be a big hassle for you ?
with best regards,
