Ticket #681 (closed defect: fixed)
mindi kernel fs detection is wrong
|Reported by:||vicgat||Owned by:||bruno|

kernel fs detection by mindi (grep -q gzip, then strings etc.) is wrong, the tests are made on vmlinuz, but it works only with initrd.
In /usr/sbin/mindi :
file $fname | grep -q gzip
I attached tests on RHEL 4 and SLES 11 SP1.
Also the tests are based on Linux kernel 2.*, but in newer GNU/LInux distribs are used Linux kernel 3.* (exemple Ubuntu 12.04, etc.)
Then at boot can occur : kernel panic : VFS : Unable to mount root fs
