mkinitramfs: /etc/mkinitramfs as default

Bug #24098 reported by Juanje Ojeda on 2005-10-17
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
initramfs-tools (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I was trying to test and play a bit with my own config dir and I found the
/etc/mkinitramfs/ was as default in a part of the script. And I couldn't work
properly until I've changed the script:

I don't know if this is useful for everybody, but it was for me. I hope it be

Jeff never did that upload, but somebody else popped onto IRC with the same idea
so I did! :)
