Is there a way to create initrd after execute mkinitcpio

Postby forumi0721 » Wed Mar 29, 2017 2:15 pm

Hi

I use arch linux arm on my Pi (Raspberry, Banana, Orange)

Sometimes I want to create automated task on u-boot image.

mkinitcpio make ramdisk, and after I want to make uinitrd using mkimage.

Sorry for my poor english


----------------
Now
1. mkinitcpio -> initramfs.img
2. (manually) mkimage -> uinitrd

Want
1. mkinitcpio -> initramfs.img ==> mkimage -> uinitrd

Write a bash script?

You could use a systemd.path to trigger a one-shot service to create the file
