After switching the debian pre release kernel names from trunk to rc,
I read in an email from the kernel team, iirc
"the rc naming convention is also problematic" .
I notice the rc kernels initramfs images being updated
after a newer kernel has been installed.
$ kernel-version list --paths
so, whenever update-initramfs -u
is called, initrd.img-2.6.39-rc7-686-pae is updated.
Adding a 0 to the rc name[s]
fixes that updating issue on my installs.
