Home Forums Software discussion Linux Kernel Issues with mainline (4.12-rc7) Reply To: Issues with mainline (4.12-rc7)


> To be honest, I tried for several hours to get initrd running. It was easy to get uboot to load the image, but I could never get the kernel to pick it up. It was really strange. I tried the stock ARCH linux image, and a custom one. No luck.

booti ${kernel_addr_r} ${ramdisk_addr_r} ${fdt_addr_r}, e.g.
booti 0x02000000 0x03000000 0x01000000

will do the job.
There are other benefits when using a initrd as well, e.g. set the rootfs to a device independent UUID and better systemd incorporation.
