Should this be an > environment variable or perhaps a configuration file entry? So far as I can see, the only reason to override post-update hooks is that one is cross-building an initramfs. In that case update-initramfs is still used for updating the host's initramfs and should continue to invoke the hooks when doing that. So this should be a command-line option and not a configuration option. Ben. -- Ben Hutchings Once a job is fouled up, anything done to improve it makes it worse.
