Description hjl 2001-08-03 12:44:57 EDT
When you have

#LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults        1
/dev/sda1               /                       ext3    defaults        1 1

in /etc/fstab, mkinitrd will put


echo "Loading scsi_mod module"
insmod /lib/scsi_mod.o 
echo "Loading sd_mod module"
insmod /lib/sd_mod.o 
echo "Loading aic7xxx module"
insmod /lib/aic7xxx.o 
mount -t proc /proc /proc
echo Mounting /proc filesystem
echo Creating root device
mkrootdev /dev/root
echo 0x0100 > /proc/sys/kernel/real-root-dev
umount /proc
echo Mounting root filesystem
mount --ro -t ext3
ext3 /dev/root /sysroot
pivot_root /sysroot /sysroot/initrd

in linuxrc.
