QEMU direct boot initrd image

This generates a separate initcpio image on the host machine for QEMU virtual machines using direct boot. Use qemu -kernel /boot/vmlinuz-linux -initrd /boot/initramfs-linux-virt.img

Create /etc/mkinitcpio.virt

MODULES="virtio-pci virtio-blk virtio-net virtio-rng"
HOOKS="base udev autodetect filesystems"

Edit /etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux.preset

PRESETS=('default' 'fallback' 'virt')

Next time you upgrade the kernel, the "virt" initramfs will be automatically updated.

To update manually, run:

mkinitcpio -k /boot/vmlinuz-linux -c /etc/mkinitcpio.virt -g /boot/initramfs-linux-virt.img
