Updating initrd is ciara dating 50cent
Since initramfs usually needs to be customized for the particular hardware/device configuration and kernel version, they are not included as a part of any package, but are generated on the fly at kernel installation time.Recently I found myself wanting to put SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 SP1 on to machine with a Sandybridge chipset.It is a cpio archive of the initial file system that gets loaded into memory during the Linux startup process.The Kernel mounts it as root file system and starts the init process from it.It should also work for Ubuntu derivatives as well as other distribution.
How can i rebuild the initramfs to load the sata drivers? I suspect that moving the drive caused it to get renamed (from sda to sdb or something along those lines) and that that is the cause of the problem.
That didn't work because the initrd file being used for PXE boot didn't have the new e1000e driver in.
