i'm upgrading my kernel to the 2.6.11 from the testing directory on the slackware cd. I was reading the initrd readme and was confused.
Now you'll want to run "mkinitrd". I'm using reiserfs for my root
filesystem, and since it's an IDE system the reiserfs module will be
the only one I need to load:
mkinitrd -c -k 2.6.11 -m reiserfs
My confusion is my hard drive is a sata drive, do i need to compile sata drive support into the initrd, for this to work? I am using reiser file sys, but i'm not sure on the sata drives if it will work or not.
