Bug Description

Binary package hint: initramfs-tools

I get the following during a dapper->hardy upgrade:

update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)^M
Setting up initramfs-tools (0.85eubuntu21) ...^M
Configuration file `/etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf'^M
 ==> File on system created by you or by a script.^M
 ==> File also in package provided by package maintainer.^M
   What would you like to do about it ? Your options are:^M
    Y or I : install the package maintainer's version^M
    N or O : keep your currently-installed version^M
      D : show the differences between the versions^M
      Z : background this process to examine the situation^M
 The default action is to keep your current version.^M

This bug was fixed in the package initramfs-tools - 0.85eubuntu31

initramfs-tools (0.85eubuntu31) hardy; urgency=low

  * debian/initramfs-tools.preinst: If /etc/mkinitramfs/initramfs.conf was not
    modified, do not copy it over to /etc/initramfs-tools on a dapper->hardy
    upgrade, since this causes an unnecessary dpkg conffile prompt.
