It's not the 'udevadm settle,' but the following ipconfig that's failing.
The virtio_net module isn't present in the initramfs (I'm booting this in a
KVM VM). ipconfig fails (silently, ick) and triggers errexit. init exits,
and the kernel panics. Adding virtio_net to the initramfs manually makes the
live image netboot just fine.
This leaves me with the question of how to have this module added to the
generated initramfs. I tried following:
but virtio_net doesn't show up in the tftpboot/ initrd, nor the chroot
How can I "properly" have virtio_net added to the tftpboot initrd?
