RE: Initrd problems

Hi Herbert,

thanks for the reply, here's the relevant files as requested...

# /etc/mkinitrd/mkinitrd.conf:
#  Configuration file for mkinitrd(8).  See mkinitrd.conf(5).
# This file is meant to be parsed as a shell script.

# What modules to install.

# The length (in seconds) of the startup delay during which linuxrc may
# interrupted.

# If this is set to probe mkinitrd will try to figure out what's needed
# mount the root file system.  This is equivalent to the old PROBE=on

# This controls the permission of the resulting initrd image.

# Command to generate the initrd image.
MKIMAGE='mkcramfs %s %s > /dev/null'
#MKIMAGE='mkext2fs %s %s > /dev/null'
# Set this to yes if you want to use busybox(1).

# Set this to no if you want to disable /usr/share/initrd-tools/scripts.

# /etc/mkinitrd/modules: Kernel modules to load for initrd.
# This file should contain the names of kernel modules and their
# (if any) that are needed to mount the root file system, one per line.
# Comments begin with a `#', and everything on the line after them are
# You must run mkinitrd(8) to effect this change.
# Examples:
#  ext2
#  wd io=0x300
