Bug#463728: initramfs-tools: update-initramfs tries to update nonexistant initramfs
Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.91d
Severity: important


At running 'update-initramfs -k all -u', update-initramfs tries to
update only nonexistant initramfs images, and ignores the ones that
actually do exist:

# update-initramfs -k all -u
/boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-4-amd64-resivo does not exist. Cannot update.
/boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-3-amd64-resivo does not exist. Cannot update.
