issues regarding using initramfs for entire root fs?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
i figure someone here has probably done this -- just as proof-of-concept, i want to create a kernel that incorporates a standalone initramfs root filesystem. if it's useful to know, it will be for a powerpc lite5200 board. it's not something i'd do in normal practice, but it's for a course i'm teaching in a couple weeks, and i thought it would be fun to show how it works. i've never done it myself, so i just want to know what limits or issues i'd run into, such as a hard limit on initramfs size or anything else. obviously, i'll try to build as small an initramfs as possible. as i said, it's not meant to be practical so much as just a demo of it being a possibility. rday -- ======================================================================== Robert P.
