But now I have gotten rid of linuxrc , so default
behaviour for ordinary kernel should be to go straight to /sbin/init . But
openssi kernel gives kernel panic .
I have tried giving kernel paramater
init=/sbin/init and other values for this parameter but it is always gives
kernel panic .
It appears the openssi kernel REQUIRES linuxrc ?
Then how do I make it ignore that linuxrc is not there ?
Any suggestions appreciated .
/sbin/init is started in a bit different way than the base
kernel. It is not
started by the kernel. Rather one of the cluster
command start the init .
This cluster command is executed from the
linuxrc and will result in
starting /sbin/init only on master node.
