NAME

       mkinitrd - is a compat wrapper, which calls dracut to generate an initramfs

SYNOPSIS

       mkinitrd [OPTION...] [<initrd-image>] <kernel-version>

DESCRIPTION

       mkinitrd creates an initramfs image <initrd-image> for the kernel with version
       <kernel-version> by calling "dracut".

           Important
           If a more fine grained control over the resulting image is needed, "dracut" should be
           called directly.

OPTIONS

       --version
           print info about the version

       -v, --verbose
           increase verbosity level

       -f, --force
           overwrite existing initramfs file.

       *--image-version
           append the kernel version to the target image <initrd-image>-<kernel-version>.

       --with=<module>
           add the kernel module <module> to the initramfs.

       --preload=<module>
           preload the kernel module <module> in the initramfs before any other kernel modules
           are loaded. This can be used to ensure a certain device naming, which should in theory
           be avoided and the use of symbolic links in /dev is encouraged.

       --nocompress
           do not compress the resulting image.

       --help
           print a help message and exit.

AVAILABILITY

       The mkinitrd command is part of the dracut package and is available from
