tweaking mkinitrd.conf

Although autodetect=1 in mkinitrd.conf worked, it loaded modules for filesystems i don't use.

After checking the wiki for initrd, i ran

mkinitrd auto --show

Checking Input...
    Making image for standard Arch kernel (2.6.14-ARCH)...
Setting up Parameters...
    /lib/modules/2.6.14-ARCH found
Creating Initial RAM Disk...
ide-core
generic
via82cxxx
ide-disk
ide-floppy
jbd
ext3
jfs
reiserfs
xfs

after some trial and error i found i only needed these modules :
HOSTCONTROLLER_IDE="via82cxxx"
FILESYSTEMS="jbd ext3"

My kernel is now atleast 1 Mb smaller than before.


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
