Initrd for kernel 3.8.11 and encrypted luks root partition in current
I have just upgraded from Slackware 64 14.0 to current but am having problems with making a working initrd. Basically the output suggested by the initrd command generator script results in an initrd that can't use my usb keyboard, with the implication that I can't enter a password for the encrypted root partition. I posted here a while back in relation to a similar problem with the 3.5 kernel on 13.37. At that point adding hid-generic to the initrd worked, but this time I'm stumped. I have compared config-generic-3.2.29.x64 and config-generic-3.8.11.x64 and can't see what I'm missing.
Back again! OK, so I am running kernel 3.4.48 to get work done but would still like to play with the latest kernel. Problem is that I still don't get a working keyboard with an initrd made with the following mkinitrd command. No one else seems to be having this problem (a good thing) but any advice would be appreciated:
