Any problem running the 64-bit mkinitrd to make the init RAM disk for 32-bit Slack?


Hi: This is Slackware 14.0. I do not have the 14.0-x86 disk at hand. Is it possible to use the mkinitrd I have in my present system, which is 14.0-x86_64, to make the init RAM disk?

i think there are no differences between version (32-64), in terms of initrd; but you must have the x86 kernel modules installed, or you'll make a initrd with 64 bit compiled modules and a x86 kernel won't be able to use them

The programs in the bin/ and sbin/ directories and their shared libraries will also need to be the 32-bit versions.
