NAME

       initramfs.conf - configuration file for mkinitramfs

DESCRIPTION

       The behaviour of mkinitramfs can be modified by its configuration file.

       Each line in the file can be a configuration variable, a blank line, or
       a  comment. The value of an variable is assigned by an statement of the
       form: name=[value]

       Configuration options can be broken out into configuration snippets and
       placed  in  individual  files in the /etc/mkinitramfs/conf.d directory.
       Files in this directory are always read after  the  main  configuration
       file,  so you can override the settings in the main config file without
       editing it directly.

GENERAL VARIABLES

        MODULES
              Specifies the modules for  the  initramfs  image.   The  default
              setting is most.

              most  adds  all  the  framebuffer, acpi, file system, ide, sata,
              scsi and usb drivers.

              netboot adds the base modules, network modules, but skips  block
              devices.

              dep  tries  to guess which modules are necessary for the running
              box.

              list includes only modules from the additional modules list.

        RESUME
              Optional setting of the swap  partition  to  resume  from.   The
              resume=  passed  on  the  command  line of your boot loader will
              override  this  setting.    By   default,   this   is   set   in
              /etc/mkinitramfs/conf.d/resume  if  the  initramfs-tools package
              was able to guess a sane default.

        BUSYBOX
              If this is set to  y  then  busybox  will  be  included  on  the
              initramfs image. You MUST use the -static version.

NFS VARIABLES

        BOOT  Allows  to  use  an  nfs  drive  as  the root of the drive.  The
              default is to boot of an local  media  (harddrive,  USB  stick).
              Set to nfs for an NFS root share.

        DEVICE
              Specifies the network interface, like eth0.

        NFSROOT
              Defaults  to  auto  in  order to pick up value from DHCP server.
              Otherwise you need to specify HOST:MOUNT.
