I've made one initrd to try. But when executing at /sbin/init, linux halts. Output log is as following: RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block 0 Freeing initrd memory: 3687k freed VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly. Freeing unused kernel memory: 64k freed Warning: unable to open an initial console. [end] By the way, using initramfs, can I have rw root fs on ramdisk? tks zhu --- Dave Aubin email@example.com wrote:
Here is a good way to do initramfs. Initramfs becomes part of the kernel and Then executes it's programs in user space which makes things nice. But there Are other advantages as well. Feel free to read these while on the thrown;)
For my needs initramfs is a life saver, but initrd is good too. Heck you could Go NFS if you wish.

I now can boot my QDIA6T(vt8601/vt82c686b) MB using hard disk as root file system though there is no vga turned on. But I don't need HD. I hope I can mount RAMDisk as my root filesystem which can be read and written. How should I do to start such work? I have read some material about initrd but I don't understand it very clearly.
