When initramfs gives you cryptic error messages

Note to self:

If during a Linux update you get the following error:

update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-whatever
W: initramfs-tools configuration sets RESUME=UUID=some-uuid-goes-here
W: but not matching swap device is available.
I: The initramfs will attempt to resume from /some/device
I: (some-other-uuid-goes-here)
I: Set the RESUME variable to override this

Check the content of the file /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume which sets the above mentioned RESUME variable. It probably contains an old UUID. Change it to the correct one and rebuild your ramfs with

update-initramfs -u

That should do the trick.

The current swap partition is usually given in /etc/fstab.

I found this information on this blog.

Limited GExperts support for Delphi 6

 Delphi, GExperts  Comments Off on Limited GExperts support for Delphi 6
Jun 202021

A few weeks back something happened with my Delphi 6 installation which now results in an access violation every time I start the IDE. I tried for several hours to find and fix the problem to no avail. It’s not GExperts related, disabling the DLL was the first thing I tried. Now I’m giving up. This will mean that while GExperts will still continue to support Delphi 6 and I will compile a dll with every release (as long as the command line compilation still works), I will not be able to debug and fix any issues.

If you are still using Delphi 6 you are invited to take over this task. I will of course mention you in the credits if you do.
(There is no money in GExperts, just whatever fame there still is left. I’m getting less in donations than I pay for this website. And I usually donate even that money to other tools that I use regularly.)

If you want to comment on this blog post, you can do so in the corresponding topic in the international Delphi Praxis forum.
