[Touch-packages] [Bug 1835660] Re: initramfs unpacking failed

2020-09-25 Thread gruberm
Just installed a new system and the bug is still there, leading me straight 
back to this bug report for the 'fix'.
I was really hoping that this bug would have been addressed in 20.04.1.
Not sure why no one from the dev team is picking this up to rectify it.

Title:
  initramfs unpacking failed

Status in initramfs-tools package in Ubuntu:
  Invalid
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  "initramfs unpacking failed: Decoding failed",  message appears on
  boot up.

  If I "update-initramfs" using gzip instead of lz, then boot up passes
  without decoding failed message.

  ---

  However, we currently believe that the decoding error reported in
  dmesg is actually harmless and has no impact on usability on the
  system.

  Switching from lz4 to gzip compression, simply papers over the
  warning, without any benefits, and slows down boot.

  Kernel should be fixed to correctly parse lz4 compressed initrds, or
  at least lower the warning, to not be user visible as an error.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 1835660] Re: initramfs unpacking failed

2020-08-06 Thread gruberm
I'm watching this error since about 10 months hoping that this would be fixed 
before the 20.04 release.
Now we're almost 4 months past the release date and it's still there.
Given that the fix is quite easy, I'm wondering why this is still an unresolved 
issue.
