While reading through the kernel documentation on ramdisk in ramfs-rootfs-initramfs.txt i was having a doubt like the ramdisk explained there is same as the initrd features described in the post at the-difference-between-initrd-and-initramfs.
Could someone clarify me on this??
And if it is the same, i read that there are many disadvantages for it, but still in my fedora PC, i see
in my boot folder. Is it different from the initrd mentioned above??
In of the articles I even saw a command like
# update-initramfs -u all
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.18-5-amd64
So how is this initramfs linked to initrd.img ?
