Kexec with LUKS

Some fancy mkinitcpio stuff needs to be done to make kexec work when the root filesystem is in LUKS; that needs to be clarified either here or in the mkinitcpio article. --Buhman (talk) 07:20, 1 October 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If you know what these fancy stuff is, please add them here or to Kexec main page (Directly edit the page is better). Everyone can contribute to Arch Wiki. -- Fengchao (talk) 09:57, 1 October 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Quite simply: fixing the kexec initscript. The kexec-load systemd unit-files already does the right thing; I no longer see reason to expend effort try to write a dirty hack for the former in this article. Admittedly, 9 days ago, I was speaking of the shutdown initcpio hook as well as including kexec in the BINARIES array, but I couldn't quite make it work *entirely* for myself, which is why I called it "fancy stuff" earlier; this was before I switched to systemd. --Buhman (talk) 09:53, 10 October 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The correct way to do this is (imho) to add clarification in mkinitcpio and reference that article here. --Buhman (talk) 09:53, 10 October 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

sd-shutdown hook and kexec

The article mention not use shutdown hook, but there no mention about sd-shutdown or if exist a workaround or even why should not be added. it need clarification and expantion. --Jristz 04:43, 26 August 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unified kernel image

It seems that as of systemd 252 and kexec 2.0.25, kexec does not support unified kernel image. -Mys_721tx (talk) 06:34, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
