I want to learn more about creating initramfs. It would be nice to be able to use mkinitcpio though.
There is a port in the netcrave overlay, will it fully work? have you ever used it?

I read mkinitcpio only works with systemd, indeed I use systemd, so it's not a matter

I'd like to use the kernel script too, but first I just want to try the mkinitcpio utility
Best

Dunno about mkinitcpio/systemd, sorry.
