Adding Third Party Driver At Installation Time.

Hi,

I have a PCIe storage device. My driver registers this device as a block device in linux. My block device is working fine under linux.

Following are the steps which I used for CentOS installation on my storage device:

1) During CentOS installation time and before scanning of my storage device, I loaded the driver from command line(By pressing Ctrl + Alt + F2)
from USB disk.
2) Post loading of drivers, the installation proceeded successfully on my storage device.

Query:

1) How to add my driver as part of installed initrd image at the installation time itself.[because root file system also installed on same device]

Waiting for positive reply

Thanks & Regards, Sateesh

  • Hello, what device is this? There may be drivers for it in Elrepo. Alternatively “dracut” is responsible for rebuilding the initramfs, see also /etc/dracut.conf.
