Default Bug#588936: initramfs-tools: still does not work with kernel-package kernels

Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.97.2
Severity: normal


Hello,

there was a bug about initramfs not created for kernel-package kernels.

I am trying to build a live CD with a kernel-package kernel and the
initramfs is still not created:

P: Begin install linux-image...
cp: cannot stat `chroot/boot/initrd.img-*': No such file or directory
P: Begin unmounting filesystems...
root@virtual:6(2) 07131715 1161]/srv/dl-test # ls chroot/boot/
config-2.6.34-1-686 System.map-2.6.34-1-686 vmlinuz-2.6.34-1-686
root@virtual:6(2) 07131716 1162]/srv/dl-test # chroot chroot
update-initramfs -u -k all
root@virtual:6(2) 07131716 1163]/srv/dl-test # chroot chroot
update-initramfs -c -k all
root@virtual:6(2) 07131716 1164]/srv/dl-test # chroot chroot
update-initramfs -c -k 2.6.34-1-686
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.34-1-686

Moreover there is no way to diagnose this failure as the initramfs-tools
kernel postinst.d script does not say if it buils an initramfs or not.

first of all kernel-package is legacy, use make deb-pkg.

how on earth is this an initramfs-tools trouble?

both this calls make no sense.

if it is not invoked not indeed.
proper diagnosis is welcome.

I prefer to call things by their name.

The simple conclusion is that nobody really needs those things.
As they are easy to add in linux-2.6 and nobody proposed it.
source deb package!? simple git clone gets more data.
headers to built against? again same git clone settled it.
