[alpine-devel] [PATCH] mkinitfs/

From: Dubiousjim <>
Date: Wed, 13 Mar 2013 15:47:43 -0400

I don't have a sendmail set up on this machine yet, so I'm copying the
patch into my webmail client by hand. It's just a single word change.

The problem is that a change to the mkinitfs repo on Feb 27
(f484b3e3db48123ce44666b54e2c297cac8b4fea) restricted the KOPT_ settings
to a whitelist of arguments. Perhaps this was related to the recent
update. Anyway, it missed one needed variable, related to the booting
from encrypted volumes. Of course I got bit by this, helping me to sniff
the problem down. :-)
