You can get the same effect with the mkinitrd(8) tool.

mkinitrd /boot/initrd-<version> <version>

(where version is, for example, 2.6.18-1.2759.fc6)
True enough - it's actually called from new-kernel-pkg, but I was worried about potential side effects.


This sounded like a great idea and I had hoped it to solve my problem. Unfortunately it didn't work and I am still getting the same error message after restarting the system
    Red Hat nash version 4.2.15 starting
     Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while ...
     No volume groups found
     Unable to find volume group "VolGroup00"

Is there anything else I could possibly try?
Is there still a chance the postinstall/preuninstall might work instead?
