# mkinitrd -v /boot/initrd-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
what does it [$(uname -r).img $(uname -r) mean?
This question was asked me in an interview...
Thanks and Regards
Execute uname -r command in Terminal. You will have the answer.
In mkinitrd command, $[uname -r] is being replaced with its output.
uname -r returns the kernel version (i.e. 188.8.131.52). By appending it to the mkinitrd command, you can easily differentiate between initrd files on a machine holding multiple kernels.
