securitybreach Posted February 19, 2021 Share Posted February 19, 2021 Quote As linux-lts moved to the 5.10 version, all official kernels of Arch Linux now support zstd compressed initramfs images, so mkinitcpio is switching to zstd compressed images by default with version 30, which is currently on [testing]. If, for any reason, you are using a kernel version prior to 5.9, make sure to change mkinitcpio.conf COMPRESSION to use one of the compressors supported, like gzip, otherwise you **will not** be able to boot images generated by mkinitcpio. https://www.archlinux.org/news/moving-to-zstandard-images-by-default-on-mkinitcpio/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
