mkinitrd warnings after kmod addition in current.


Code:

I haven't tried booting from this new initrd yet, so I don't know whether this is fatal or not, but I was wondering whether the kmod update is going to require changes to mkinitrd and possibly the mod tools that are in the initrd's busybox?

UPDATE 2: I was incorrect. It doesn't prevent booting after all, as I made a typo in the mkinitrd. Sorry all.

Thanks, I have an updated version of mkinitrd from rworkman that should take care of that issue, but it's also going to depend on some other changes elsewhere. Meanwhile, be careful and enjoy -current.

Yesterday, I compiled two custom kernels for the -current branch: one 3.2.21, another one 3.4.4. In both cases, mkinitrd issued the same warnings but this didn't prevent the kernels from booting.

No one gets any points for spotting my typo including me. (hint: s/ext/ext4/ )
False alarm! It will boot after all.

s1aw0, thanks for prompting me to take a second-look, and apologies to Pat and the team.
I'll go and sheepishly remove the scary topic title now.
