initramfs_complete.cpio.gz for Little Endian?

The MicroBlaze Linux General wiki page references two prebuilt ramdisk images being available.  One without shared library support, initramfs_minimal.cpio.gz, and one with shared library support initramfs_complete.cpio.gz.  The MicroBlaze Linux Little Endian wiki only references the initramfs_minimal_le.cpio.gz that is included with the MicroBlaze GNU Tools.

 

Is there a initramfs_complete_le.cpio.gz available from Xilinx?

 

Thanks,

 

Steve

Re: initramfs_complete.cpio.gz for Little Endian?

Can someone explain the difference between complete and minimal initrams??

When should I compile the kernel with complete and when with the minimal initrams???

Thanks in advance

Re: initramfs_complete.cpio.gz for Little Endian?

initramfs_minimal.cpio.gz is a prebuilt ramdisk image that Xilinx provides to get you started with a basic or bare bones Linux system.  It contains a minimal set of files that are required to boot and run the Linux kernel on MicroBlaze.  For a Little Endian MicroBlaze system, Xilinx only provides the minimal image and not one (initramfs_complete.cpio.gz like on the PowerPC Linux kernel) with more libraries or modules added to it for more Linux functionality.
