Updating initrd

this works that way: and voila, the new is ready for flashing. LNI knows how to do this, but he hasn`t published this.

All these boxes feature UBoot as the stock bootloader.

If you flash uboot as a replacement for the stock bootloader you can place the initrd kernel also to /boot/ instead.

the kernel and the initrd both are inside the firmimg.bin-files which are inside the firmware-update-packages. some smart japanese guys wrote a tool called firmimgtool.

Do you think the "firmware-linux" package might now be necessary?

You have to boot to kernel-3.10.0-123.20.1.el7.x86_64 On examining /boot/the following line is missing: initrd /initramfs-3.10.0-229.7.2.el7.x86_64Adding the above line to and rebooting fixes the problem.According this "log" it seems to be that the firmware have been moved/removed?.. It is the firmware for the network card, but it works fine....Example showing how to mount a file called initrd.img-2.6.8-2-686 (from a default Debian Sarge kernel): # All work is done in a temporary directory mkdir /tmp/initrdmount # Mount the image file directly mount -o loop /boot/initrd.img-2.6.8-2-686 /tmp/initrdmount #Investigate its content, etc.cd /tmp/initrdmount #Once done un-mount it: umount /tmp/initrdmount Seen on: Debian Sarge, kernel 2.6.8 This is the same as above just that the file is compressed (with gzip).I really would like to know what issue is raised by that message. It says "Possible..." meaning that it may or may not be relevant.
