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.

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
