I would like to follow this piece of advice on
mdadm Wikipedia article (to get
mdadm & RAID working on my Karmic workstation):
To solve this problem, you need to build a new initrd without the dmraid-driver. The following command does this on a system with the "2.6.18-8.1.6.el5"-kernel:
mkinitrd --omit-dmraid /boot/NO_DMRAID_initrd-2.6.18[..].img 2.6.18[..]
However, turns out Ubuntu uses
initrd-tools (and thus
mkinitrd) is no longer available for it.
Can I use
mkinitramfs to build initrd omitting dmraid? The man page does not mention such option at all. Or if not
mkinitramfs, some other way to do it on Ubuntu 9.10?
(Follow-up to this question.)
