* Remove '--no-absolute-filenames' from cpio invocations Eric Hameleers2019-11-201-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | Since cpio 2.13, this option strips '/' and '../' from symbolic and hard links during extraction of a cpio archive like our initramfs. This is implemented as a fix for CVE-2015-1197 but breaks the initrd. And leaving out this option does not have the adverse effect I always thought it would have... archive extraction is still done into the current directory and not in the filesystem root.
* NFS root (PXE boot): add virtio drivers required for older VM Eric Hameleers2019-11-021-20/+22
| | | | | The virtio_pci driver is required in some cases when using older types of virtual machine software.
* fix path determination for kernel and modules Eric Hameleers2019-09-081-4/+4
| | | | Thanks to 0XBF for debugging.
* use the OS to find partition names Eric Hameleers2019-05-051-9/+14
| | | | | | This should allow usage of external storage devices like SD cards, whose partition naming conventions are different from generic USB devices. E.g. /dev/mmcblk0p1 is the first partition of /dev/mmcblk0 (note the 'p').
* Add missing template vars to Eric Hameleers2019-04-141-2/+10
| | | | | Several template vars were added to liveinit.tpl but I had forgotten to also incorporate those in the script.
* do not presume that people build overlayfs as a module Eric Hameleers2019-03-171-1/+1
| | | | | | The script will now only fail if you have zero modules in your tree. I presume (!) that this corner case will never occur. In any case, I will not support it.
* remove double string occurrence Eric Hameleers2017-09-231-1/+1
* filename argument to '-i' can be a relative pathname Eric Hameleers2017-09-231-1/+1
