Bug#270898: cp: preserving permissions for `initrd/bin2': Invalid argument
I updated a woody installation (installed via woody-xfs CD) to sarge.
Everything went good. After all I'd like to install a recent kernel (from
2.4.18-bf2.4-xfs to 2.6.7-1-686).
I did this several times before on different machines - never had a problem.
But all other machines were installed via a normal woody CD not via woodx-xfs
CD (see: http://people.debian.org/~blade/XFS-Install/) - so I don't know if
this could cause that...but maybe...
See what happened:
# apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.7-1-686
Setting up kernel-image-2.6.7-1-686 (2.6.7-2) ...
cp: preserving permissions for `initrd/bin2': Invalid argument
Failed to create initrd image.
dpkg: error processing kernel-image-2.6.7-1-686 (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 9
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I'm unable to install a recent kernel image. I figured that /usr/sbin/mkinitrd
must cause the error "cp: preserving permissions for `initrd/bin2': Invalid
Let me know if you need more specific information. BTW: I don't use LVM.
