Creating an initrd is done as part of the process of compiling a kernel, if your distro requires initrd. Look into your Fedora documentation on kernel compile and making initrd.

I have compiled a kernel with RAMDISK support and used mkinitrd for creating an initrd but that is not what I require any ways where can I get this fedora documentation.

What IS it that you require?

If you have managed to compile a kernel, create an initrd with ramdisk support, etc., then you clearly know what an initrd is and why it is used ... do you not?

What do you want then?

NO! I dont get the question and its clear by the many links and thread responses that others dont either.

And saying "I'm not satisfied with the answers" is definitely the wrong way in English. Its rude and arrogant.

What do you want to say ?? If you dont want to reply better do not reply LQ is not the only forum on this planet to look for good answers .In fact most of the time LQ has served with people like you who do not have any answers except pulling legs and participating in some funny discussions on some serious posts.

Keratos, understand this is an official warning. Hear me CFB: moderators do value meaningful discussions however talking back like that isn't going to help your case, so don't. If you do not have anything useful to add then please do not participate.

If one does not respect the moderator one has no respect for the forum and will have no support from the members.

Although keratos' intention may be sincere and wishes only to know the request more specific that his/her approach has not been well received by the OP.

A moderator is the referee and redazz is absolutely right to "moderate" the wording of the members so that we all can enjoy the forum.

We "expect" the moderators to intervene when something is unacceptable has been posted. The moderator looks after the quality of the forum, rarely get praised and also always get criticised.
