I'm using this (the GUI one). My resulting initrd after the rebuit is only a few bytes. Can't be right. Anyone been using this and got it working?

This utility is not working for me. It opens 4 files/scripts to edit. Then I do this, save it but the rebuilt initrd.gz is only a few bytes big. Surely this can't be right?

Quick test with ver.1.4 and it works fine.
Open and read the help file.
initrd.gz file has to be in /root, otherwise you will get only few bytes big initrd.gz
If you still have troubles here is how you can edit initrd from command line:

If you have edit-initrd.sh in /usr/sbin, from the command line use:

Code:
/usr/sbin/edit-initrd.sh /path-to/initrd.gz
