Hi Ben, thank you very much indeed for the quick answer.
I must have misunderstood the suggestion given in a previous update
(Sept. 25th, 2010) about replacing the line 'do_bootloader = yes' with
'postinst_hook = yes', which I did simply as suggested, without touching
anything else. Now, what triggers the /usr/bin/yes still remains a
mistery to me. May be this program shoud be given a different name,
provided it is worth keeping it ;-).
Thanks againg,
Ennio

The actual message is:

"If the boot loader needs to be updated whenever a new kernel is
installed, the boot loader package should install a script in
/etc/kernel/postinst.d. Alternately, you can specify the command
to update the boot loader by setting the 'postinst_hook' variable
in /etc/kernel-img.conf."

It appears that you missed the words 'specify the command'.

You configured it to run after kernel installation/upgrade; that's what
postinst_hook means.

'yes' is a common Unix utility and must not be removed.

Ben.
