Fedora Test Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 5
Name        : initscripts
Version     : 8.31.2                      
Release     : 1                  
Summary     : The inittab file and the /etc/init.d scripts.
Description :
The initscripts package contains the basic system scripts used to boot
your Red Hat system, change runlevels, and shut the system down
cleanly.  Initscripts also contains the scripts that activate and
deactivate most network interfaces.

Update Information:

initscripts-8.31.2 adds a udev helper for renaming devices,
so that devices are renamed to their configured name on
module load, as opposed to when they are brought up.

Since this is adding new code to the boot path, it could use
a good deal of testing; it will be pushed final once I'm
comfortable that there are no regressions.
