youd think id know better than to ask slackers for help with slackware by now
every system is going to have not only different hardware but different setups as far as filesystem and partitions goes, its not like these people trying to help you are sitting beside you at your desk, most of it is educated guesses based on their personal experiences,

i been using slackware a good long while and know it is a very stable and trustworthy system, and if i have problems i know it is either my hardware being wonky or my ignorance about something getting in the way and after a little bit of investigating and studying the problem i usually figure it out for myself with the help of google search which sometimes sends me right back here to linuxquestions.org to an old post where someone was having the same problem i was having

im over it. i can get a valid command from the interactive generator. youd think id know better than to ask slackers for help with slackware by now
Goddamn, dude. I'm not running -current, but I've used the generator non-interactive for years without a hassle on laptops with LUKS and LVM. I've also made stupid effing errors in my setups that I would have bet my life I didn't do until I finally figured out that I actually did do it.

My rep points were gained on this forum by helping (or trying to, anyways) other Slackers.

INTERACTIVE
Code:
mkinitrd -c -k 4.19.16 -f ext4 -r /dev/cryptvg/root -m xhci-pci:ohci-pci:ehci-pci:xhci-hcd:uhci-hcd:ehci-hcd:hid:usbhid:i2c-hid:hid_generic:hid-asus:hid-cherry:hid-logitech:hid-logitech-dj:hid-logitech-hidpp:hid-lenovo:hid-microsoft:hid_multitouch:jbd2:mbcache:crc32c-intel:ext4 -C /dev/sda2 -L -u -o /boot/initrd.gz
it's odd, as GazL & Alien Bob pointed out:
what you define as interactive spits out a -m option
what you define as non-interactive doesn't spit out a -m option

reading the documentation README_CRYPT.TXT you can actually run the command interactively
Code:
/usr/share/mkinitrd/mkinitrd_command_generator.sh -i
Quote:
You can even run
the script in full interactive mode by using the "-i" parameter, and it will
guide you through the process of generating a mkinitrd commandline.
would be worthwhile to go deeper and get to the bottom of this issue of yours

Hi all,

This case might be related to earlier posts in this thread.

I just did try to install the latest slackware64current version (burned today).
I did burnt it on a slackware64 14.2 systems exactly as I did at earlier occasions.
But now I got problems with ramdisk generation, just after all packages were installed.
The messages I got was repeated in some loop:
mkinitrd_command_generator.sh Line 345: shift: 2 : shift count out of range.

This type of error was not present in the 18 december 2018 version I burned earlier and which installed
smoothly.

Has there been a change in the mkinitrd procedures?
The test system 8Mb memory.

Best regards,

talo
