I've got a lot (around 100) computers and I have to apply them and create from scratch an already-patched kernel (a 18.104.22.168). I'm using "make-kpkg" tool which is very good. It creates me every required files for the kernel in just one ".deb" file (kernel-image...22.214.171.124....blabla.deb)
Then, on every machine I just install this .DEB file and the kernel is automatically installed. However, i need to create locally a "initrd" file for the kernel in order to correctly boot. This method is working well on EVERY desktop I have, even though there are different kind of Hardware. If I do it on laptops (I've tried on DELL D600, D620, D800 and D810), I've got every time the same error message and my kernel can't boot.
Here is the message :
pivot_root : No such file or directory
/sbin/init : 432 Cannit open dev/console : No such file
[17179570.332000] Kernel panic - Not syncing : Attempted to kill init !
Do you have any idea please ?
