I compiled Xen 3.3.0 according to the steps given in the readme byrunning the following:

#make world

#make install

 I tried to create an initrd using the following:


#mkinitrd -v -f --with=aacraid --with=sd_mod --with=scsi_mod initrd-

and got the following error:

Unknown option: -v

Try mkinitrd -h


Then I added the "aacraid, sd_mod, scsi_mod" to "INITRD_MODULES" section in "/etc/sysfconfig/kernel", as mentioned in one of the archieved mails and executed

#mkinitrd initrd-

The result was:

/sbin/mkinitrd: line 3521: initrd- No such file or directory
No '/' mountpoint specified in initrd-

The same issue was mentioned in 2006 by someone but I could not see any proper response.  Can someone please help me here?
