Debian/Squueze - Linux 2.6.32-5-686 #1 SMP Sat Jul 24 02:27:10 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
last week the upgrading to sub '27' of captioned linux-image stopped
on a line saying 'Running yes' while running update-initramfs. To
continue, I had to find the relating process and kill it, thus receiving
an error and no upgrading of the image.
I tried a few times until, almost by chance, looking at the 'ps' output I
saw this line:
thus becoming aware there really was a '/usr/bin/yes' program (in coreutils
pkg). So I decided to try again after hijacking 'yes' (moving it to
# apt-get upgrade
Setting up linux-image-2.6.32-5-686 (2.6.32-27) ...

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Despite the error, the image is correctly created and the bootloader
updated. However, looking into the 'postinst' file, I was unable to find a call to
'yes' so I do not quite understand what and why is happening. On the
other hand, I see no reason why such a program, whose aim is to 'output
a string repeatedly until killed' should intervene in the upgrading
Thanks for any help.
