making initrd.gz

Post by H3g3m0n » Sat Jul 02, 2005 10:41 am

Im trying to upgrade from 2.4.22 to 2.4.29 so that i can compile lirc and use the dvd remote however I don't know how to make an initrd.gz image. I know it uses mkinitrd but I don't know exactly what command line options I need to feed it.

Code: Select all

make menuconfig
make bzImage
then copy bzImage (it will be in a subdir, forget what) to your e: and either rename it to vmlinuz or edit your cfg, you dont need to mess with the other file[/code]
