This somehow explains why I have written my own scripts to create initrd.
Still with recent updates (after lenny=stable) I have problems with my tv
card and the usb initialization of the port that it's connected to. I have
to reboot so that it may work.
I was thinking it's because udev but never find time to investigate.
Curiously the debian own initrd is even working worse than my one, so may be
I'll investigate further.
I remember someone reported that he has to reboot to get his usb drive
settled, because of power or somekind of other issue.
So the question is if one should include the hole udev staff in initrd?
