initramfs-tools 0.99ubuntu7 source package in Ubuntu
initramfs-tools (0.99ubuntu7) oneiric; urgency=low * When falling back to vesafb, suppress stderr output from modprobe; otherwise in some cases we'll get error output on a console that was nicely blank up to a week ago. Failing to load vesafb is usually not an error in any case. -- Steve Langasek <email address hidden> Thu, 06 Oct 2011 13:21:02 -0700

Binary packages built by this source
- 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.
