+.TH MKINITFS-BOOTPARAMS "7" "July 2018" "mkinitfs @VERSION@" "Early startup"
+alpine-bootparams \- control the startup behavior using the kernel command line
+.\" Add any additional description here
+In early boot, the preferred way to supply configuration data to the running
+system is via kernel options. The kernel options are specified in the bootloader
+configuration and are supplied to the kernel and early userspace in early boot.
+The mechanism and options that are interpreted by the kernel itself are
+documented in \fIbootparam(7)\fR.
+The options documented here are interpreted by the initramfs-init script that is
+part of the initramfs, see \fImkinitfs(1)\fR to learn how to customize it.
+This comma-separated list names kernel modules that modprobe will reject to load.
+Enables bootchartd for measuring system startup speed.
+Enable the discard feature for encrypted Solid State Disks. This might have
+security implications.
+After the block device has been decrypted, make it available as
+When the LUKS headers and encrypted data are on different devices, this option
+specifies the device with the LUKS headers.
+Attempt to decrypt an encypted partition using an keyfile.
+Indicate that the encrypted data begins the given number of sectors after the
+start of the block device.
+Attempt to decrypt \fIDEVICE\fR.
+Enable DASD devices on S/390x architectures.
+Print debug information during boot.
+Additional command like arguments for \fI/sbin/init\fR.
+Specify the network configuration as a colon-separated list of variable length.
+The 3rd and the 5th list item is ignored. The format is compatible with the
+SYSAPPEND option of syslinux. Use \fBip=dhcp\fR for automatic configuration via
+Comma-sparated list of kernel modules to load explicitly.
+Disable DMA for ATA devices.
+When booting from an read-only partition, you can specify this flag to have
+your changes written to an in-memory overlayfs.
+Generate less output.
+Swap partition to resume from.
+\fBroot=\fR(\fIDEVICE\fR | nfs:\fIIP-ADDRESS\fR:\fIPATH\fR)
+Device or NFS url for the root partition.
+Mount options for the device specified with \fBroot=\fR.
+File system type for the device specified with \fBroot=\fR.
+Allowed values are the same like the \fB\-t\fR option for \fImount(1)\fR.
+Configure network devices for the S/390x architecture.
+Launch root shell before switching to the root partition.
+If no \fBroot=\fR parameter is given, the initramfs will build an live system
+in memory from scratch. This is also called diskless mode.
+When booting in diskless mode, the following options are also available:
+\fBalpine_repo=\fR(\fIURL\fR | \fIPATH\fR)
+If set, \fI/etc/apk/repositories\fR will be filled with this. May be an URL.
+\fBapkovl=\fR(\fIURL\fR | [\fIDEVICE\fR[:\fIFS_TYPE\fR]:]\fIPATH\fR)\fR
+A HTTP, HTTPS or FTP URL to an apkovl.tar.gz file which will be retrieved and
+applied. Can also be an filesystem path, optionally prepended with the device
+name without the /dev/ prefix.
+Setup a fresh system, ignore any \fBapkovl\fR.
+Comma-separated list of packages to be installed.
+\fBssh_key=\fR(\fIURL\fR | \fISSH_KEY\fR)
+This setting installs openssh and places the public key given as value in
+If the value is an HTTP or FTP url, its fetches the key(s) from there.
+Enable splash screen
+Wait \fINUMBER\fR seconds for USB devices to show up before searching for boot
+Default script that will be run in the initramfs.
