I am trying to make a system as bulletproof as possible.
For that reason there is always a rescue kernel and a
rescue initrd that can be used for a remote-reinstall.
The weakest point of my approach is installation of a new
(operational, not rescue) kernel or initrd since this involves
writing the map-file.
I am thinking about writing a kernel and initrd with a =
fixed size to some partition, umount it and then just write =
updates to the sectors listed in the (now static) map through
the raw-device. =
Since this approach is pretty weird, I=B4d be very grateful
if anyone can point me to a better solution.
Thanks a lot, Bjoern =
