Binary packages built by this source

cloud-initramfs-copymods: copy initramfs modules into root filesystem for later use

 When booting with an external-to-root kernel and initramfs, you need
 to ensure that /lib/modules contains any necessary modules not already
 loaded.
 .
 This package arranges for the modules in the initramfs to be placed
 into /lib/modules after the switchroot is done.

cloud-initramfs-dyn-netconf: write a network interface file in /run for BOOTIF

 This package provides an initramfs module that will write a simple
 network interfaces formated file to /run/network/interfaces with
 entries for any devices that were configured during initramfs.

cloud-initramfs-growroot: automatically resize the root partition on first boot

 This package adds functionality to an initramfs built by initramfs-tools.
 When installed, the initramfs will repartition a disk to make the
 root volume consume all space that follows it.
 .
 You most likely do not want this package unless you know what you are
 doing. It is primarily interesting in a virtualized environment when
 a disk can provisioned with a size larger than its original size.
 In this case, with this package installed, you can automatically use
 the new space without requiring a reboot to re-read the partition table.

cloud-initramfs-rescuevol: boot off a rescue volume rather than root filesystem

 This package adds functionality to an initramfs built by initramfs-tools.
 When installed the initramfs will check to see if any partitions
 with a label of 'RESCUE_VOL' are attached. If such a volume is attached,
 it will boot off that volume rather than the root volume.
 .
 This is useful in a cloud environment, when the user is able to attach
 and detach volumes to a running system, but has no other mechanism
 for interupting of fixing a failed boot. It is analogous to inserting
 a rescue CD into a system to recover from failure.

cloud-initramfs-rooturl: use a tarball or squashfs image in a url as the root filesystem

 Allows user to pass in root=http://example.com/your.tar.gz
 Root filesystem will be tmpfs from that url.

overlayroot: use an overlayfs on top of a read-only root filesystem

 This package adds functionality to an initramfs built by initramfs-tools.
 When installed and configured, the initramfs will mount an overlayfs
 filesystem on top of a read-only root volume.
 .
 The changes can be written to a in-memory temporary filesystem, a
 filesystem on an existing block device, or a dmcrypt encrypted block
 device.
