CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE: Initramfs source file(s)

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE has multiple definitions:

Initramfs source file(s) found in drivers/block/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE:

Help text

This can be either a single cpio archive with a .cpio suffix or a space-separated list of directories and files for building the initramfs image. A cpio archive should contain a filesystem archive to be used as an initramfs image. Directories should contain a filesystem layout to be included in the initramfs image. Files should contain entries according to the format described by the "usr/gen_init_cpio" program in the kernel tree.

When multiple directories and files are specified then the initramfs image will be the aggregate of all of them.

See <file:Documentation/early-userspace/README for more details.

If you are not sure, leave it blank.

This can be set to either a directory containing files, etc to be included in the initramfs archive, or a file containing newline separated entries.

If it is a file, it should be in the following format: # a comment file <name> <location> <mode> <uid> <gid> dir <name> <mode> <uid> <gid> nod <name> <mode> <uid> <gid> <dev_type> <maj> <min>

Where: <name> name of the file/dir/nod in the archive <location> location of the file in the current filesystem <mode> mode/permissions of the file <uid> user id (0=root) <gid> group id (0=root) <dev_type> device type (b=block, c=character) <maj> major number of nod <min> minor number of nod
