Bug#218602: after boot from cd, both initrds are still mounted

Package: rootskel
Version: 0.47
Severity: normal
Tags: d-i

I booted from a current CD in bochs. mount shows two old initrds still

/dev/root.old on /initrd/initrd
/dev/root on /initrd

They look like substantially the same initrd to me, from their sizes and

I fixed a similar problem with booting from floppy in init.bootflopy in
rootskel 0.47. I found that to fully unmount the initrd, I needed to
unmount initrd before doing the pivot_root. Perhaps the same or a
similar problem persists in the regular init used by CDs, though I
don't understand where the second initrd copy comes from for CDs.

I'm not in a postition to make CD images, so I cannot try it, but you
might try adding an umount /initrd before the pivot_root in sbin/init.
