initramfs-tools 0.99ubuntu6 source package in Ubuntu


initramfs-tools (0.99ubuntu6) oneiric; urgency=low

  * scripts/init-top/framebuffer: fall back to vesafb if no other
    framebuffer is found/configured, so we can take full advantage of the
    grub gfxpayload handoff support.  This ensures we get a clean
    framebuffer-based plymouth screen even when using binary video drivers.

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 MD, LVM2, LUKS or
 NFS is also supported.
 Any boot loader with initrd support is able to load an initramfs archive.

initramfs-tools-bin: binaries used by initramfs-tools

 This package contains binaries used inside the initramfs images generated
