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.

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

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

              list includes only modules from the additional modules list.

        BUSYBOX
              Include busybox utilities for the boot scripts.  If set  to  ā€™nā€™
              mkinitramfs  will  build  an initramfs whithout busybox.  Beware
              that many boot scripts need busybox utilities.

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.
