the live-initramfs source package has been removed from maverick. In natty, the source package 'live-boot' reintroduces live-initramfs.

live-boot installs a ./lib/live/config/016-sysvinit file that modifies /etc/inittab, which doesn't exist in ubuntu anymore. live-boot therefore needs porting to upstart

affects: live-initramfs (Ubuntu Natty) → live-boot (Ubuntu Natty)

This bug was fixed in the package live-boot - 2.0.14-1ubuntu1

live-boot (2.0.14-1ubuntu1) natty; urgency=low

  * Make live-initramfs depend on live-config-upstart on Ubuntu, rather than
    live-config-sysvinit (LP: #724452).
