initramfs-tools 0.85eubuntu39.3 source package in Ubuntu


initramfs-tools (0.85eubuntu39.3) hardy-proposed; urgency=low

  * Functionality backported from Intrepid to Hardy to support booting
    degraded RAID, LP: #290885.
  * scripts/functions: Adjust the mountroot failure hooks framework to
    that used in Intrepid, renaming the function so as not to break other
    callers in Hardy
  * scripts/local: Add get_fstype() and root_missing() helper functions
    and fix the root_missing loop

initramfs-tools: tools for generating an initramfs

 This package contains tools to create and boot an initramfs for packaged 2.6
 Linux kernel. The initramfs is a gzipped cpio archive. At boot time, the
 kernel unpacks that archive into RAM, mounts and uses it as initial root file
 system. The mounting of the real root file system occurs in early user space.
 klibc provides utilities to setup root. Having the root on EVMS, MD, LVM2,
 LUKS or NFS is also supported.
 Any boot loader with initrd support is able to load an initramfs archive.
