mkinitramfs is intended to create the ultimate initramfs image.

mkinitramfs is designed to boot from any media (SATA, PATA, SCSI, USB, CD-ROM, etc.) without any changes being made to your disk.

However, it is very simple (about 400 lines of code).

up-to-date udev subsystem that provides /dev/disk/by-uuid/ and /dev/cd/by-id entries (if you want to boot from CD


./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install

What's New in This Release:
"init=" kernel parameter support was added.
EVMS support is now really working (plugin files were missing).
Small reimplementations were done to support other Linux distributions.
Preliminary dmraid support was added.
