After manually compiling and installing a new kernel, what has to be done regarding the initramfs?

  • To initramfs is independent of the kernel and should not be modified unless the hardware configuration of the machine has changed
  • Since the initramfs contains kernel modules, a new initramfs must be built for the new kernel
  • During the compilation of the Linux kernel, a new initramfs is built automatically. The new initramfs only needs to be installed 
  • The system should be restarted since the initramfs reconfigures itself for the new kernel during the startup of the system
