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


       mkinitrd [OPTION...]


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

           This version of mkinitrd is provided for compability with older versions of mkinitrd.
           If a more fine grained control over the resulting image is needed, dracut should be
           called directly.


       -R, --version
           print info about the version

       -k <kernel_list>
           List of kernel images for which initrd files are created (relative to boot_dir),
           defaults to vmlinux on ppc/ppc64, image on s390/s390x and vmlinuz for everything else.

       -i <initrd_list>
           List of file names (relative to boot_dir) for the initrd; positions have to match the
           kernel_list. Defaults to initrd.

       -m <module_list>
           Modules to include in initrd, defaults to INITRD_MODULES variable in

       -f <feature_list>
           Features to be enabled for the initrd. In general mkinitrd configures the initrd for
           the root device it is started from. With this option additional feature can be

       -b <bootdir>
           Boot directory, defaults to /boot, where the initrd is created.

       -d <root_device>
           Root device, defaults to the device from which the root_dir is mounted; overwrites the
           rootdev enviroment variable if set

       -s <size>
           Add splash animation and bootscreen to initrd.

       -D _<interface>
           Run dhcp on the specified interface (for example "eth0").

       -I _<interface>
           Configure the specified interface statically.

       -a _<acpi_dsdt>
           Attach compiled ACPI DSDT (Differentiated System Description Table) to initrd. This
           replaces the DSDT of the BIOS. Defaults to the ACPI_DSDT variable in

       -M _<map>
  file to use.

           Don’t run the update-bootloader(8) script after the initrd(s) have been created. This
           is useful if you call mkinitrd(8) for anything else than the running system.

           Create a so called "monster initrd" which includes all available features and modules.
           This calls dracut with --no-hostonly and --no-hostonly-cmdline parameters internally,
           instead of the default --hostonly and --hostonly-cmdline.

       -v, --verbose
           increase verbosity level

           Disable logging to /var/log/YaST2/mkinitrd.log. This is useful for testing if you
           don’t want to clutter the system log.

           print a help message and exit.


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