Description:
pacman -S mdadm
[...]
(1/1) upgrading mdadm [#########################################] 100%
grep: /etc/mkinitcpio.conf: No such file or directory

On my VPS I don't use an initrd hence I don't have mkinitcpio installed. mdadm assumes /etc/mkinitcpio.conf exists though.

The above error is not fatal, just a (very) minor annoyance. But it can be fixed easily by using "grep -s" (to make grep fail silently) instead of just "grep" in mdadm.install.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  Removed install scriptlet in SVN. No need to warn about something that happened 3 1/2 years ago.

Better yet, this warning should be removed. kernel 2.6.8 was released in 2004.
