NAME

mkinitrd.yaird - mkinitrd for initramfs  

SYNOPSIS

mkinitrd.yaird -odestination [version]  

DESCRIPTION

Mkinitrd.yaird is a wrapper around yaird(8) that accepts the same command line arguments as the Debian program mkinitrd(8), a tool to create an initial boot image.

To let yaird build the initial boot image when a Debian kernel package is installed, rather than the default mkinitrd, put the following line in /etc/kernel-img.conf:

ramdisk = /usr/sbin/mkinitrd.yaird

Support for the ramdisk variable is built into the kernel package; it is available in Debian kernels packaged since june 2005.  

OPTIONS

-odestination
Place result here. The destination must not exist yet. There is no default for this option.
-mcommand
This option is ignored.
version
The kernel version for which the initial boot image is to be generated.
