Hi,

I currently have a running nfs root client that iam pretty happy with.

Now I wanted to make it look a bit better while booting (fbsplash), so I created a initrd using


Code:
genkernel initramfs --no-ramdisk-modules --splash=bla -- .....


and I changed my kernel command line:

Code:

APPEND ip=dhcp root=/dev/nfs quiet nfsroot=192.168.123.150:/mnt/diskless/client rootpath=/mnt/diskless/client rw

to

APPEND initrd=/client/boot/initrd.gz vga=788 video=uvesafb:800x600-32@60 splash=silent,theme:freevo console=tty1 panic=10 ip=dhcp real_root=/dev/nfs quiet nfsroot=192.168.123.150:/mnt/diskless/client rootpath=/mnt/diskless/client rw


I also have the root in the fstab as rw.

but whenever I load the initrd, the root filesystem gets mounted as ro, even if mount shows it as rw??? are there any options I have to add

Thanks,

I used the splash_geninitramfs now which works as expected, and as I dont need the genkernel initramfs for anything else.
