    yaird unrecognized device LNXSYSTM


    Hi all,

    I was trying to create a ramdisk using the following command when I get the subsequent errors.

    machine1:/boot# mkinitrd.yaird -o initrd.img-2.6.18-6-amd64 2.6.18-6-amd64

    yaird error: there were errors in this run, aborting now without output (fatal)

    Does anyone know what is happening or how to resolve this? Thanks!

    Sorry for replying to my own post. Just hope that it may help someone if they encounter the same problem.

    Somehow yaird hates LNXSYSTM, which is an ACPI device. So I booted with the kernel option "acpi=off". This will cause LNXSYSTM:00 not to be loaded. I was then able to create initrd with yaird. For subsequent boots, acpi can be left on.

    It'll be good if someone can explain why yaird doesn't work well with LNXSYSTM:00.
