I hope I'm wrong: I'm getting the msg that 1.6 gig of ram is required to build an initrd image.
Someone please tell me I'm wrong!
I have only 512 MB of ram, and the mkinitrd auto command works just fine for me.
I imagine it's all dependant on the size of the initrd image - how much stuff are you putting in yours?
Thanks for replying. I have one gig of ram. I didn't specify any modules. From you say it sounds like it automatically specifies all. I got the message that I needed 1.6 gig. I wasn't given the chance to specify anything.
