config INITRAMFS_SOURCE
string "Initramfs source file(s)"
default ""
help
This can be either a single cpio archive with a .cpio suffix or a
space-separated list of directories and files for building the
initramfs image. A cpio archive should contain a filesystem archive
to be used as an initramfs image. Directories should contain a
filesystem layout to be included in the initramfs image. Files
should contain entries according to the format described by the
"usr/gen_init_cpio" program in the kernel tree.
When multiple directories and files are specified then the
initramfs image will be the aggregate of all of them.
See <file:Documentation/early-userspace/README> for more details.
If you are not sure, leave it blank.
config INITRAMFS_ROOT_UID
int "User ID to map to 0 (user root)"
depends on INITRAMFS_SOURCE!=""
default "0"
help
This setting is only meaningful if the INITRAMFS_SOURCE is
contains a directory. Setting this user ID (UID) to something
other than "0" will cause all files owned by that UID to be
owned by user root in the initial ramdisk image.
If you are not sure, leave it set to "0".
config INITRAMFS_ROOT_GID
int "Group ID to map to 0 (group root)"
depends on INITRAMFS_SOURCE!=""
default "0"
help
This setting is only meaningful if the INITRAMFS_SOURCE is
contains a directory. Setting this group ID (GID) to something
other than "0" will cause all files owned by that GID to be
owned by group root in the initial ramdisk image.
If you are not sure, leave it set to "0".
config KLIBC_ERRLIST
bool "Early userspace real error messages" if EMBEDDED
default y
help
If this is set, kinit (and other klibc-derived binaries)
will have the standard list of error messages built in, and
thus will report, for example, "No such file or directory"
instead of "Error 1". Leaving it out will save
approximately 4K from each static binary (one, unless you
have a different initramfs_source.txt) or the shared
library.
If you are not sure, "Y" is highly recommended.
config KLIBC_ZLIB
bool
default y
help
This builds the zlib portion of klibc. This is currently
required.
