how do I create an initrd.img file?
I've created a new kernel and am trying to get it set up to boot from. I'm pretty sure I need to create a new kernel-specific initrd.img file. I've been looking online and see a tool in RedHat called: mkinitrd. Its not on my debian installation and doesn't seem to be available via aptitude. Is there a debian utility that will create this file? Here's the RedHat blurb:
The mkinitrd utility creates an initrd image in a single command. This is command is peculiar to RedHat. There may be equivalent command of mkinitrd in other distributions of Linux. This is very convenient utility.
Thanks n advance,
The command you are looking for is:
It should work something like
mkinitramfs -o <file to create> <kernel version>
Hope this helps
Thanks for the help!
