You forgot to update the md5sum for 044-1

./configure should not be in "package()" but in "build()"

also it's missing configure arguments,


systemdsystemunitdir is vital for proper initramfs shutdown

Apparently, dracut now needs "./configure" to be run explicitly.

The file "Makefile" has:

dracut.pc: Makefile

but there is no rule to make "", which is actually created by "configure". So "./configure" can be added to the "build()" function in PKGBUILD.

I deside add pigz as a dep.

case $compress in
gzip) compress="gzip -n -9 --rsyncable"; command -v pigz > /dev/null 2>&1 && compress="pigz -9 -n -T -R";;

$ gzip -n -9 --rsyncable <some_file>
gzip: unrecognized option '--rsyncable'
Try `gzip --help' for more information.

So, either remove the command line switch '--rsyncable' from that line in the file "/usr/bin/dracut", or install the "pigz" package. Which is to say, practically, "pigz" should be a dependency for dracut.

Sugestion to improve are welcome.

You've got bash in both depends and optdepends - that makes no sense.

makedepends needs to contain asciidoc.

+makedepends=('asciidoc' 'docbook-xsl')
