Ok PhilE, I think I know what I'm doing. If not somebody has made a monumentous mistake somewhere along the line.PhilE wrote:Unless you know what you are doing and have very good reason to, you are better off letting the firmware decide where to load the initrd:Note also the new, preferred syntax ("initramfs <file> <addr>"), although the old version is still supported.
Code: Select all
initramfs initrd.gz followkernel
So, you guys wanted to know if there were any problems or issues and I found some. I'm already aware of the new syntax for loading the ramfsfile, but have been using the older syntax for quite a few years. I tried both versions and all variants in trying to get the initrd to load on the rpi1, 2 and 3. It might be better for Raspbian to load the initrd straight after the kernel with the code you advise but... I'm not working with Raspbian.
