Ok, so most of this is now done (see included file for repositories
The only thing left to do is parted (hence the empty line at that
But after successfully installing grub on the device and trying
to boot, I get a panic:
Begin: Loading essential drivers … done.
Begin: Running /scripts/init-premount … done.
Begin: Mounting root file system … [ 9.147470] Kernel Panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x00000000
[...] ? panic+0xc5/0x1dd
[...] ? do_exit+0x4b5/0x904
[...] ? mntput_no_expire+0x17/0x126
[...] ? do_group_exit+0x77/0xa1
[...] ? sys_exit_group+0x12/0x16
[...] ? system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1n
PS. I had to create a dummy '/scripts/zfs' file on the initrd,
there doesn't seem to exist one anywhere what I can see.
Or is this the problem perhaps? Is there such a script
somewhere? Couldn't find anything that looked relevant.
Putting it in /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts and then
update my initrd made it go further (but ended up with
the panic above).
PS2. With the command line created by grub-mkconfig, I get
Booting a command list
error: sparse file not allowed
The command line created was:
linux /ROOT/debian/boot/@/vmlinuz-3.9.0-rc6+tf.1 root=/dev/sda1 ro boot=zfs $bootfs quiet
If I instead do it manually with this:
linux /ROOT/debian/boot/@/vmlinuz-3.9.0-rc6+tf.1 root=ZFS=/ROOT/debian ro boot=zfs $bootfs
Then I get the above panic...
Build a man a fire, and he will be warm for the night.
Set a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.
