Issue #2798 has been updated by swildner.

Is this booted from an ISO?

232MB seems too much. Note that cd9660 fs has some kind of bug that causes  
hard links to be counted separately as if it were separate files so du(1)  
output for example might give a false impression.

On master here I see:

advancer# du -sh /usr/share/initrd/
  14M    /usr/share/initrd/

So it should fit. Not sure what the problem is. I'll try installing from a  
4.0.3 ISO tonight.


Submit #2798: mkinitrd insufficient default size, triggerred by installer

Using DragonFly 4.0.3-RELEASE #27, 
mkinitrd has a default size of 15MB, 
but it needs about 232MB to contain /usr/share/initrd wholly.
This should be evident on most systems with
> grep -A4 initrd /var/log/install.log | head -n 12

/etc/mkinitrd.conf or /etc/defaults/mkinitrd.conf should probably be increased.
Is there any reason to keep the smaller INITRD_SIZE="15m" setting?

Also, can a static /bin/vi and /sbin/undo please be included in /usr/share/initrd?
It would be a great help with repairing configuration mistakes.
Thank you.
