Bug#270898: cp: preserving permissions for `initrd/bin2': Invalid argument

Package: initrd-tools
Version: 0.1.74


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.
