|Hardware||Adélie Linux / All|
|Importance||Normal / critical|
An initrd is required to boot Adélie in any of the following situations:
- root (/) is not extfs (XFS, JFS, BTRFS, NILFS2, F2FS, Reiser, and NFS are all modules)
- root is on LVM
- root is encrypted
- user desires better support than sg / ATA_GENERIC (all vendor-specific SATA/PATA controller drivers are modules)
We have no system to create them. The following choices are available in Portage:
This was originally Red Hat's initramfs generator, which has since been 'absorbed' into kernel.org.
This is Gentoo's initramfs generator.
The following other choices are likely able to be packaged for Adélie:
Used by Arch Linux.
Used by Alpine Linux.
We could also write our own.
