RE: 2.6.14 image will not install (SOLVED)
>The new mkinitrd.yaird fails. Anyone else have this problem, fixed it?
This new yaird stuff uses files in new directory /etc/yaird
The Default conf file needs be edited BEFORE attempting the install :-)
1. I changed cpio to cramfs -- this means I want an initrd rather than
something else. :-). This was probably already being done by the install
scripts command line.
2. I pointed the MOUNTDEV to the root fs device in /etc/fstab. If you do not
do this, then who knows what you get! (Note that all such options here take
your "target" followed by "/mnt")
3. /etc/fstab had that device mounting as ext3,ext2 as a fallback. Since the
mkinitrd.yaird modprobs based on this substring, this produces an error. Ext3
works so the ,ext2 was deleted. Now, everything flows.
I did not touch any of the other templates in /etc/yaird. Now, I'll see what
happens if I try to boot it .....
BTW: Who is yaird? Davidb might want to be in touch :-)
