The following wall of text exists in the initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf
# MODULES: [ most | netboot | dep | list ]
# most - Add all framebuffer, acpi, filesystem, and harddrive drivers.
# netboot - Add the base modules, network modules, but skip block devices.
# dep - Try and guess which modules to load.
# list - Only include modules from the 'additional modules' list
Most seems to be the intuitive option of course, but what do each of these options actually do?
How does "try and guess which modules to load" work?
Does netboot include "most" (add the base modules...) and more, or is it
a different set of modules?
Does most actually mean 'all'?
Only include modules from the 'additional modules' list.. where is this list?
These options are very unclear, if anyone could please elaborate, go into detail about them, or link me to a FAQ (or man page? Neither of which I could find..) I'd appreciate it.
