Description dieter ferdinand 2017-01-20 09:21:17 UTC
because i need the usb-storage sometimes for a raid device i try to compile a kernel with build in usb-storage to get access to usb-drives.

but this don't work. with buildin usb-storage drive, initramfs is ignored, my raidsystem is not started and my system don't boot.

without buildin usb-storage driver, i have no problems to boot my system.

i don't know, where this bug is, but i think it is in the kernel.

Could you please add some info, such as emerge --info, kernel type/version, kernel config, etc.?

i try different kernels and settings and at the end, no kernel will boot with initramfs.

after some hours of compiling and testing, i changed my raidsystem to metadata 0.9  and activation  by the kernel on boot, so i don't need the initramfs and boot my system direkt because i have no more time to find the bug while my systemm must running.

i can send you a link to download my kernel and initramfs if you want to analyze this.

Is this issue still outstanding?
Comment 8 dieter ferdinand 2018-07-19 16:46:51 UTC
i don't know.

after the problem with initramfs i changed my settings to boot without initram to solve this problem and this system is not for test because it is my master server and must working.

i don't have the time, to configure an other system to test it because i have to much todo.
