#2990 Change: mkosi-initrd
Closed: Accepted 21 days ago by zbyszek. Opened a month ago by bcotton.

mkosi-initrd is an alternative builder for initrds. It will be packaged in Fedora, so that users can use it to build initrds locally. A kernel-install plugin will be provided to build the initrd when a kernel package is installed. As a stretch goal, initrds will be build in koji and delivered via rpm packages. As a further stretch goal, pre-built initrds will be used in Unified Kernel Images that can be delivered via rpm packages.

Only a subset of installation types will be supported.

Sure, meh.

I appreciate the enthusiasm.

All aboard the hype train, choo choo :steam_locomotive: +1

Better? 🤭

Yes, that's some proper feedback!

I've lost track of the number of initrd building tools we've had over the years. Seems like the topic always needs revisiting. :)
