# mkinitfs
This is the initramfs generator for Alpine Linux, including support for apk and
Alpine Diskless boot.
## Dependencies
To compile manually, you need to have the following build tools available:
- make
- gcc with musl and kernel-headers
nlplug-findfs will link against the following libraries (runtime deps):
- libkmod
- libblkid (from util-linux)
- libcryptsetup
## Installation
Build mkinitfs via `make` and install it via `make install`.
The installation honours the `DESTDIR` parameter to overwrite the sysroot path.
For testing, its not necessary to install `mkinitfs` into your root file system.
## Tweaking
The Makefile is kept slim and debuggable.
