RE: [linux-lvm] Initrd, usefull ?


When you compile the kernel, the best thing is to compile scis drivers in
the kernel, After that use lvmcreate_initrd to create the initial ramdisk
file. BUT you probably have to change the ramdisk size. This can be done by
changing the lvmcreate_initrd script. There is an option INITRDSIZE. A value
of 8192 should be sufficient.
