Projects / RuckusRD


RuckusRD is a drop-in replacement for mkinitrd that's intended for use on embedded systems or removable media (e.g. live CDs), but is also perfectly usable on normal desktop Linux systems. Its main strength is its non-memory-retentive read-write root filesystem support, which combines a read-only SquashFS image with a RAM overlay. This utility is part of the Source Ruckus project.
