initramfs information not up-to-date

Talk status
This discussion is done.

The statements about the initramfs are not up-to-date anymore:

FILE /usr/src/linux/Documentation/kdump/kdump.txt
...
kexec -p <dump-capture-kernel-vmlinux-image> \
   --initrd=<initrd-for-dump-capture-kernel> --args-linux \
   --append="root=<root-dev> <arch-specific-options>"
Hi Timeraider , If the statements are not up-to-date then fix them. It's a publicly modifiable wiki... --Maffblaster (talk) 19:07, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Why write your own boot script?

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

sys-apps/kexec-tools installs its own boot service /etc/init.d/kexec with a config in /etc/conf.d/kexec. Why does this article ignore those files and instead describes how to create one in /etc/local.d/ ? — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tkzv (talkcontribs)

At a guess: Because the boot service is configured to trigger on a system reboot and does not appear to contain any options for setting a kernel to load on a panic. Tlhonmey (talk) 18:49, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Remove double quotes?

Talk status
This discussion is done.

Hi, I believe there's no need for these quotes after '--append'. It doesn't work with them, but works fine without them. Can anyone else confirm? Is it OK to edit the page? — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Idosch (talkcontribs)

Double quotes should not provide any issues with the --append option. They may be unnecessary, but they are certainly not breaking anything by leaving them. Please remember to sign your comments when you commit to discussion pages. :) Kind regards, --Maffblaster (talk) 19:05, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
