    You should describe the problem you're having instead of trowing a vague question.

    .ovl file is : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OVL
    The process of transferring a block of program code or other data into main memory,replacing what is already stored.
    No it is not working yet.
    Dracutis is used to create an initramfs image by copying tools and files from an installed system and
    combining it with the dracut framework. Initramfs has one purpose, mounting the root file system so
    the boot process can transition to the real rootfs.
    Debian package: Dracut: https://packages.debian.org/jessie/dracut
