This is great: thanks! Apart from changing the comment about it being unsupported, I would consider this good to go. Jasonwryan (talk) 23:32, 6 October 2019 (UTC)
The page looks good, I'm working on the dracut and mkinitcpio hooks, you can also suggest users to remove mkinitcpio after installing and testing dracut, since the kernel now depends on initramfs. Grazzolini (talk) 01:41, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Followed the guide, and have been using Dracut successfully for the whole month of Oct. 2019. From a regular user standpoint, I think it's good to go! Merlock (talk) 22:26, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
I am using dracut on my machines too since a while but I would really like to also see a hook generating the initramfs automatically as its done at the moment with mkinitcpio and the respective hook in the kernel package (before I would categorized this as "done"). Not sure this is what Grazzolini mentions he is working on? Privacy (talk) 13:20, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
You are not alone. I have created pacman hook which contains sed script executed each time the 'linux' package is updated, but I also want official solution. In recent thread in mailing list developers have announced that dracut will soon receive relevant hooks, but 'soon' may require long time ... Mxfm (talk) 16:52, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
