Bug#849532: flash-kernel does not remove dtb backups

Package: flash-kernel
Version: 3.72
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

when a Linux kernel is installed flash-kernel creates a dtb backup file.

This file is not removed when the Linux kernel is remove. E.g.

sudo apt-get remove linux-image-4.8.0-1-armmp
left file

As it is flash-kernel that creates both the
as well as the
files it should also take care of removing them fully.

The .bak file should not be created on the first install of a Linux kernel.

Best regards

Heinrich Schuchardt
