I'm trying to add dropbear to my initramfs so I can unlock the encrypted disk through a remote SSH session (as described here). I'm running Fedora 16 which apparently uses dracut to generate the initramfs image. Can anyone explain (or provide a link) how to add dropbear to initramfs using this setup?
Ive reinstalled three times in the past two weeks and each time I eventually run into this same problem. When installing something (this time the nvidia driver) that requires update-initramfs to be run, it stalls and hangs.
$ sudo update-initramfs -u
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.5.0-17-generic
I let it sit like this for near an hour once and it did nothing.
