Debian unstable update initramfs

Post by X11 » Sun May 02, 2010 11:59 am

dpkg appears to be stuck while upgrading the kernel package.

Code: Select all

john@laptop:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
Setting up linux-image-2.6.32-3-686 (2.6.32-9) ...
Running depmod.
Running update-initramfs.
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-3-686
It just sits here for hours, this the second time around. I can't find a switch of dpkg to get more detailed output about this.

I'm sure you've already done a bit of searching and ran across this:

Not sure if it has anything to do with your situation but it does sound similar. Is that command just a script? If so edit it and throw in some debug statements to see what it's hanging on.
