Not having very serious problems with my Linux per se (Kernel: 4.15.0-122-generic i686 Bits: 32 Desktop: MATE 1.20.1 Distro: Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa) I also wonder about these irritating initramfs-tools messages saying "ORDER ignored: not executable", although they don't seem to be error messages: maybe it is meant that these scripts are "not executable".
But anyway i've got a question, maybe a silly one: Would it make sense to alter the access privileges of these scripts by giving them execute permission?
