Description Moritz Muehlenhoff univentionstaff 2013-09-06 12:36:57 CEST
Historically Debian kernel uses some bits of kernel-package for genering the maintainer scripts of kernel packages.

kernel-package is now deprecated: The Linux kernel packaging in Debian no longer uses it.

We still write out a a template for /etc/kernel-img.conf. Some of the variables configured there are still uses in the maintainer scripts of the Linux package, but some are obsolete and can be removed:

kernel/clobber_modules
kernel/do_bootfloppy
kernel/do_initrd
kernel/do_initrd


We should also remove kernel/ramdisk. For practical purposes a different ramdisk generator is not supported.

Still true with UCS-4.2:
/etc/kernel-img.conf:12: W: ignoring unknown parameter do_bootfloppy
/etc/kernel-img.conf:13: W: ignoring unknown parameter silent_loader
/etc/kernel-img.conf:15: W: ignoring unknown parameter postinst_hook
