Default Latest kernel security update wont boot resolved

The problem is operator (that's me) stupidity.

I have an overloaded find so I can say find foo and have it mean
find . -name foo -print

mkinitramfs uses find . | cpio to build the initrd.img

I have my stuff in the path (yeh i know i know)

I've wasted my time - i deserve it - and your time - you don't.

Sorry.

I'll try to be more careful :-)

ooh, interesting. I wouldn't have seen that coming from a mile
away. HOw do you have that overloading set up? and how does
mkinitramfs use find. If it uses the full path, then you could alias
find to a "my_find_script.sh" and still get your desired performance
without interfering with well written utils that use find.

not at all... this is how we learn. Now we, and everyone reading this
thread, know that this can happen.... IT's another symptom to be aware
of. An initrd that comes out too small might be because it just
doesn't find the modules properly.
