Default Bug#582776: pointless generation of an initrd for initrd-free custom kernels

Package: initramfs-tools
Severity: normal


Note that if you build your kernel with kernel-package it has an option to build an initrd which defautls to off.

As you mention kernel-package you must have turned that option on for the initrd to be generated.

Actually not only when this option is off the initrd is not generated but there is no initrd generated in a chroot, regardless of this option.

So all in all initramfs-tools don't generate intrds when they should, not the other way around, at least in my experience.

Thanks

Michal
