Warning in update (Hopefully in the "can be ignored" cat)

So, having figured out how to upgrade the system, it generated the following message (the line in question is the one that starts with "WARNING"):

Code: Select all
:: Running post-transaction hooks...

==> WARNING: No modules were added to the image. This is probably not what you want.

Is this reason for concern, or is it the usual "Oh, it's Linux, just ignore it" sort of thing?

Never used Arch, but having a quick read of https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Mkinitcpio it looks like it's used to create an initial ramdisk environment before going into the full 'init'.
So as long as it can mount your root filesystem, I think you should be OK (I don't know if it specifically requires a module for whatever filesystem your root is on though)

Heh heh. Yeah, that's kinda what I thought...
