Thread: Mkinitrd fails

  1. #1

    Default Mkinitrd fails

    Dear people,
    Needed some newer pre release software for a recent bought laptop (Lennovo G505)

    It runs fine but after kernel 13+ mkinitrd started to fail (worked in the first versions of the 13+ kernel).

    Have tried different versions of kernel-desktop, kernel-firmware, ucode-amd. But no avail.

    OS Version is opensuse 13.1
    kernel-desktop: kernel-desktop-3.14.rc6-4.1.x86_64
    kernel-firmware: kernel-firmware-20140319git-36.1.noarch
    ucode-amd: ucode-amd-20140319git-36.1.noarch

    The error message is:

    Kernel image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.14.0-1.g79de0a7-desktop
    Initrd image: /boot/initrd-3.14.0-1.g79de0a7-desktop
    KMS drivers: radeon
    Root device: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST1000LM024_HN-M101MBB_S2SMJ9FDA13801-part3 (/dev/sda3) (mounted on / as ext4)
    Resume device: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST1000LM024_HN-M101MBB_S2SMJ9FDA13801-part2 (/dev/sda2)
    Microcode: Adding AMD microcode microcode_amd_fam16h.bin
    cp: missing destination file operand after ‘/tmp/.3shsudCI/mnt/lib/firmware/amd-ucode’
    Try 'cp --help' for more information.
    Script /lib/mkinitrd/setup/91-amd_microcode.sh failed!
    There was an error generating the initrd (1)

    Thanks in advantage!

    That's by no means a default setup. What's the reason you're not using stock 13.1?

    Can't tell what you mean by 13+, but Factory replaced mkinitrd with dracut,
    which is what you should be using for kernels newer than those intended for 13.1.
