  • Perform a dry run (print what would be done without actually doing it):
     
    mkinitcpio
     
  • Generate a ramdisk environment based on the linux preset:
     
    mkinitcpio --preset {{linux}}
     
  • Generate a ramdisk environment based on the linux-lts preset:
     
    mkinitcpio --preset {{linux-lts}}
     
  • Generate ramdisk environments based on all existing presets (used to regenerate all the initramfs images after a change in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf):
     
    mkinitcpio --allpresets
     
  • Generate an initramfs image using an alternative configuration file:
     
    mkinitcpio --config {{path/to/mkinitcpio.conf}} --generate {{path/to/initramfs.img}}
     
  • Generate an initramfs image for a kernel other than the one currently running (the installed kernel releases can be found in /usr/lib/modules/):
     
    mkinitcpio --kernel {{kernel_version}} --generate {{path/to/initramfs.img}}
     
  • List all available hooks:
     
    mkinitcpio --listhooks
     
  • Display help for a specific hook:
     
    mkinitcpio --hookhelp {{hook_name}}
