initrd.img Details

Hi,

I am building the Custom Image 4.4 for BeagleBone Black using Robert Nelson. I have the the following clarification

  1. The initrd.img file is missing: After I build the “Linux Kernel” version 4.4 I didn’t see the initrd.img. Can you please let me know where this file(initrd.img) will be created after building the Linux kernel.
  2. uEnv.txt is not using initrd.img: The uEnv.txt shows that loadxrd for initrd.img is not loaded and used as shown in the link https://eewiki.net/display/linuxonarm/BeagleBone+Black

Thanks,
Veera

Boot into your rootfs without the initrd.img

run:

sudo update-initramfs -uk `uname -r`

to generate your initrd.img...
