This is an announcement for those of you still using mkinitrd to boot your machines.
For some time now there has been a notice upon kernel install that mkinitrd will be replaced by mkinitcpio once the 2.6.18 series is released. That time is quickly approaching. To anyone who has not at least tried mkinitcpio (/boot/kernel26.img) is advised to try it and report any issues on the bug tracker before this goes live.
Thank you, phrakture
