What is rootdelay?
rootdelay instructs the kernel not to give up immediately if the device isn’t available. The kernel can’t know whether a SCSI drive is a local disk or some kind of RAID bay. rootwait is provided to wait indefinitely.
How do I change the root delay in Linux?
Just try this:
- after the boot ends with the UUID message and (initramfs) just type exit or exec startx and it will get you into GUI.
- edit as root /etc/default/grub.
- find #GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true , delete # and save it.
- in terminal run: sudo update-grub and sudo reboot.
What is Initrd used for?
initrd provides the capability to load a RAM disk by the boot loader. This RAM disk can then be mounted as the root file system and programs can be run from it. Afterwards, a new root file system can be mounted from a different device.
How do I turn on early Printk?
Early printk can only be enabled if debug=y. You may want to enable it if you are debbuging code that executes before the console is initialized. Note that selecting this option will limit Xen to a single UART definition.
What is Rootwait?
Rootwait is a Linux kernel command line parameter that makes the kernel wait (indefinitely) for a root device to show up. This can be useful for devices that are detected asynchronously such as USB or MMC medias.
What are Bootargs?
When combined with a U-Boot variable named bootargs, this feature allows you to tell the kernel how to configure various device drivers, where to find the root filesystem and can even be used to pass information to applications on the system.

What is difference between initrd and initramfs?
In sum, ramfs is just file opened and loaded into memory, isn’t it? Both initrd and ramfs are zipped at compile time, but the difference is, initrd is a block device unpacked to be mounted by the kernel at booting, while ramfs is unpacked via cpio into memory.
