New initrd needed: howto create a speedy one?


Hello,

for the reason my PC hangs a long time at the boot line
initrd /boot/initrd.img-3.7.10-antix.7-486-smp
I decided to uopdate it with
update-initramfs -u
but the error
"cryptsetup: WARNING: failed to detect canonical device of /dev/sda2" appear.

I have few questions now:
- how to create a quick initrd
- how to avoid that error?

Your help will be much appreciated.

For quick initrd find out the cause of delay. Typically they are fast.

After another "update-initramfs -u" its quick (perhaps I forgot to boot in the previous post).
So, my original initram had probably an issue making the booting time very long.
