NAME

       mkinitrd.yaird - mkinitrd for initramfs

SYNOPSIS

       mkinitrd.yaird -odestination [version]

DESCRIPTION

       Mkinitrd.yaird  is  a  wrapper  around  yaird(8)  that accepts the same
       command line arguments as the Debian program  mkinitrd(8),  a  tool  to
       create an initial boot image.

       To  let yaird build the initial boot image when a Debian kernel package
       is installed, rather than the default mkinitrd, put the following  line
       in /etc/kernel-img.conf:

              ramdisk = /usr/sbin/mkinitrd.yaird

       Support  for  the ramdisk variable is built into the kernel package; it
       is available in Debian kernels packaged since june 2005.
