CH 5 mkinitrd
 
On page 130 in Chapter 5, William gives an example for making an initrd image. I am using SUSE 10.x sp1 (whatever) and the mkinitrd command does not have an -o option. When running the command without the -o option I receive the error:


nasty1:/boot # mkinitrd initrd-2.6.16.46-0.12-xen.img 2.6.16.46-0.12-xen

/sbin/mkinitrd: line 3297: initrd-2.6.16.46-0.12-xen.img/etc/fstab: No such file or directory
No '/' mountpoint specified in initrd-2.6.16.46-0.12-xen.img/etc/fstab



Am I correct in assuming that the -o option is similar to the --output option in the yaird example?

or For SUSE, what is appropriate and what directory does one need to be parked in when the command is given? (/etc/boot ?)
Thanks.
David

Re: CH 5 mkinitrd
 
Well, just look on page 129, where there are the options for the command mkinitrd for the "-o".

I'm not sure about the fact you should give the absolute path for the initrd file you are creating, but you could try.

Cheers,
