    Hi,

    I'm trying to compile the Debian 2.6.14 linux kernel with some extra patches
    (suspend2, reiser4...). I'm using initramfs-tools for generation of the
    initrd image. I've added proper suspend2 sripts and hooks
    into /etc/mkinitramfs too.

    The kernel gets installed fine but when I try to boot with the kernel it
    fails while trying to mount:
    /dev/mapper/lnx-root to /root

    and everything after that fails. I checked the /etc/initramfs folder and
    found nothing but only my scripts and the config files.

    Is this a known issue ? How do I fix it ?

    Thanks,

    rrs

    Not a fix but it helped me. But it's weird.
    Installing yaird solved the problem. That means the custom packages were
    built correct. It was initramfs-tool which wasn't generating a proper
    initrd image.

    Regards,
    rrs.
