    Command:

    mkinitrd

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           mkinitrd [OPTION...] [<initrd-image>] <kernel-version>
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           mkinitrd creates an initramfs image <initrd-image> for the kernel with
           version <kernel-version> by calling "dracut".
    
               Important
               If a more fine grained control over the resulting image is needed,
               "dracut" should be called directly.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           --version
               print info about the version
    
           -v, --verbose
               increase verbosity level
    
           -f, --force
               overwrite existing initramfs file.
    
           *--image-version
               append the kernel version to the target image
               <initrd-image>-<kernel-version>.
    
           --with=<module>
               add the kernel module <module> to the initramfs.
    
           --preload=<module>
               preload the kernel module <module> in the initramfs before any
               other kernel modules are loaded. This can be used to ensure a
               certain device naming, which should in theory be avoided and the
               use of symbolic links in /dev is encouraged.
    
           --nocompress
               do not compress the resulting image.
    
           --help
               print a help message and exit.
    
    
    

    AVAILABILITY

           The mkinitrd command is part of the dracut package and is available
           from https://dracut.wiki.kernel.org
