Default Bug#573580: new option to ignore hooks etc. under /usr/share/initramfs-tools

Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.92o
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

Hi,

What do you think about adding such a feature? It would be useful
for creating custom initramfs images for other machines in conjunction
with the -d option. Find attached a patch against the Lenny branch.

Thanks,
Feri.

don't think both features mix equaly well.

first of all the ignore mechanism should be more flexible,
allowing to pass a list of things like an
EXCLUDE="lvm2,legacylvm,keymap,cryptopensc,cryptro ot"
in initramfs.conf

second the other box feature request needs deeper structural changes
hadn't time to get along yet and didn't see anyhting conclusive yet.

> Find attached a patch against the Lenny branch.

please go for latest git, has lots of changes, thanks:
http://git.debian.org/?p=kernel/initramfs-tools.git;a=summary
(that will land soonest in sid)

but i don't think that I'd want to merge this proposal as is currently,
due to aboves points.

thanks for tackling this issues.
