[linux-lvm] Howto create a Compressed ROM File initrd with lvmcreate_initrd



	Hi,

Thanks for reading,

I am using Debian as a distro and it usses a cramfs initrd file when it
boots.
Here is the output from the original initrd file and the one created by
lvmcreate_initrd.

1. Orginal
initrd.img-2.4.20-686:      Linux Compressed ROM File System data,
little endian size 2920448 version #2 sorted_dirs CRC 0x2e79d9f7,
edition 0, 1565 blocks, 200 files

2. lvmcreate_initrd
initrd-lvm-2.4.20-686.gz:   gzip compressed data, from Unix, max
compression


Has some of you myth have seen in earlier posting my system wil not boot
When I use the initrd I have created with lvmcreate_initrd.

Here is the message:
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 3a:00

So I think the problem has to do with the fact that my kernel expects a
cramfs initrd
File and not a gzip compressed.

Any idea's in howto solve this ?
