Slackware64-14.1 ChangeLog (2012-12-11)

Tue Dec 11 22:35:02 UTC 2012

  • a/mkinitrd-1.4.7-x86_64-7.txz
    Added support for the parameter names that control the delay before
    attempting to mount the root filesystem, and the root file system type:
    'rootdelay' 'rootfstype' respectively. These are the official/documented
    parameters in the kernel documentation. The original parameters ('rootfs'
    and 'waitforroot') may still be used.
    Thanks to Thorsten Mühlfelder and Richard Lapointe for the suggestion.
    For ARM devices: unless specified when the initrd is built, or at boot
    time as a kernel parameter, wait a minimum of four seconds for the root
    device to become ready.
    Thanks to Jerome Pinot for the suggestion and the patch.
