Bug#505239: preinst: initrddep not initialized

Package: linux-image-2.6.26-1-686-bigmem
Version: 2.6.26-10
Severity: minor


The preinst/initrd-2.6.26-1-686-bigmem template uses an ${initrddep}
substitution, which always gets replaced by "D", as the $initrddep Perl
variable corresponding to it is never assigned anything else.  This
results in a strange dialog when installing the package on a system
having no tools for initrd generation.  This happened to me a couple of
times upgrading Xen virtual machines (running Lenny) to this kernel.
