mkelfImage - make an elf network bootable image for linux
] [--kernel=path to
] [--ramdisk= path to ramdisk
is a program that makes a elf boot image for linux kernel
images. The image should work with any i386 multiboot compliant boot loader,
an ELF bootloader that passes no options, a loader compliant with the
linuxBIOS elf booting spec or with the linux kexec kernel patch. A key feature
here is that nothing relies upon BIOS calls, but they are made when necessary.
This is useful for systems running linuxbios.
Not all kernel parameters can be passed with the multiboot image format. ip
configuration is not automatically passed to a node. The ramdisk base is hard
coded to 8MB by default. This man page need to be updated.
The kexec kernel patch. LinuxBIOS. Etherboot. The multiboot standard.
