Clean kernel image embedded initramfs

SystemRescueCd's kernel is compiled in two stages. After first compile, modules are packed into a cpio file and then in the second compile CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE is set to this temporary cpio. This makes things simple since the final bzImage contains both kernel image itself and the modules. Unfort...

Re: blkid and libblkid in the initramfs are outdated

Ping? The initramfs has at least these outdated components: (4.1.0-beta005) initramfs .dat -------------------------------------------------- util-linux-2.17.x [1] util-linux-2.22.2 udev-164 udev-204 module-init-tools-3.16 kmod-13-r1 mdadm-3.1.4 mdadm-3.2.6-r1 lvm2-2.02.93 lvm2-2.02.103 ethtool-2.6....

Re: initrd mount freeze if it try to mount a 0Xaa filled dev

Btw, current initramfs has a lot of old stuff, like udev 164, old glibc, module-init-tools (newer versions are now kmod), etc.

Re: initrd mount freeze if it try to mount a 0Xaa filled dev

admin, I don't use network boot of any kind. But util-linux's mount would not have any side effect I think. What do you think about replace BusyBox's mount with it? The util-linux filesystem probing is much better.

Re: initrd mount freeze if it try to mount a 0Xaa filled dev

With util-linux's mount, we can try something like this to avoid some unnecessary mounts: --- init.orig 2013-07-26 10:40:01.087645960 -0300 +++ init 2013-07-26 13:33:49.681537217 -0300 @@ -837,7 +837,7 @@ mkdir -p ${mountdir} for curdev in ${searchdevices} do - devsize=$(blockdev --getsize64 ${curde...

Re: initrd mount freeze if it try to mount a 0Xaa filled dev

What I said about libblkid is for the util-linux's mount, not the BusyBox one that is used by SYSRCD initramfs. SystemRescueCd already has libblkid (and libuuid) in the initramfs for blkid. I think would be better use util-linux's mount too there. libmount.so will be needed too.

blkid and libblkid in the initramfs are outdated

The blkid binary and libblkid in the initramfs are outdated (2.17.2 and 2.17.0). Please sync them with 2.22.2 used in the .dat file. Or even better, update to 2.23.1 ;)

Edit: libuuid too.

Re: [Help] "removableonly" option

My bad! I was extracting and creating it with a normar user account. With root it's all working!

Now I'll test the patch a little more. Sorry for the noise.

Re: [Help] "removableonly" option

It actually boots, but stays some time at "Freeing unused kernel memory: ...". Maybe it's hiding that message that show the sysrcd.dat copy progress (I use docache). What's odd is that if I use "minishell" then yes, I get a kernel panic with no useful messages, just blinking keyb...

Re: [Help] "removableonly" option

I was using "xz --check=crc32" (without --x86 --lzma2). That wouldn't make difference I think, as LZMA2 is the default and "--x86" is just an optimization.

Re: initrd mount freeze if it try to mount a 0Xaa filled dev

:( So I think no<fs> only works with "mount -a" (reading /etc/fstab).

When I say a bug in the kernel I mean the UDF driver should have more checks to detect that in this situation the volume is not UDF and simply return an error.

Re: initrd mount freeze if it try to mount a 0Xaa filled dev

You're right. mount falls back to /{etc,proc}/filesystems when libblkid doesn't find any known superblock on the device. mount -t noudf ... is also a possible workarround as it is almost the same thing than creating /etc/filesystems without udf (it will ignore true UDF volumes detected by libblkid t...

Re: initrd mount freeze if it try to mount a 0Xaa filled dev

Why is the init trying to mount with every FS available? Shouldn't mount itself do the job through libblkid?

BTW, where can I find the latest SystemRescueCd init scripts? I used to access Sourceforge Git, but can't find them anymore there.
