Yes I have checked out the Fedora RPM page that has been referenced here, but I can't follow it it is not foolproof/idiotproof sorry! I am not saying that it is bad, but hard to follow :(, just easier building from source, but what can change the make install call upon dracut instead of mkinitrd? This has not been answered. I am waiting for a good thorough explanation or example that can work from source?
