Package: kernel-package
Version: 12.033
Severity: normal


I compiled kernel 2.6.34-rc1 vanilla, 2.6.33 stable vanilla and 2.6.32 from
Debian sources, using:

# make-kpkg --initrd --revision="foo" --us --uc kernel_image

In all compilations (two machines) I saw the message after "dpkg -i kernel-foo":

run-parts: executing /etc/kernel/postinst.d/initramfs-tools 2.6.34-rc1-git6 

However, the initrd wasn't created in /boot. So I received this error when
booting the machine:

Kernel panic - no syncing VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

When I make "# update-initramfs -c -t -K 2.6.34-rc1-git6" and put an initrd
line in grub.cfg, I get the perfect boot.

I think it is a bug.

Thanks in advance.
