Are you certain this is the user explicitly choosing to use a broken
ramdisk generator? If not then please do not so hastily reassign -
especially since that tool is expected to die soon, and with it all
bugreports filed against (or reassigned to) it.


Could you please provide the content of /etc/kernel-img.conf - and also
tell us if you've run some custom ramdisk-building scripts yourself, in
addition to the stuff done automatically by the kernel image postinst

Also, do you have lilo installed? Do you use it, or do you use GRUB or
another bootloader?
