So, my habit is to have /usr sit on top of LVM on top of mdraid. I
genkernel assistance building initramfs
really don't want to get into the business of manually managing my own
initramfs, and udev >= 181 will eventually hit stable. I want my
systems ready before that.
Now, having looked at the pertinent documentation, it looks like the
command I need to run is:
genkernel --lvm --mdadm --disklabel initramfs
and then add the initramfs to my grub setup.
The trouble is, genkernel dies on me. I tried for some feedback in
#gentoo-chat, and DrEeevil gave me two clues:
13:34 <+DrEeevil> that shouldn't even be possible
13:36 <+DrEeevil> mikemol: looks like static linking didn't on your system
I don't know where to take things from here. I'm hesitant to file a
bug on b.g.o, because the tail end of genkernel.log specifically says
not to file build errors as bug reports.
So...any ideas? This is an amd64 mostly-stable system, and dracut is
still masked on amd64, which is why I'm trying to get genkernel
I've attached genkernel.log
