/lib/udev/cdrom_id is missing in initramfs

Bug #254360 reported by Steven Shiau on 2008-08-03
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
live-initramfs (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: udev

 LANG=C apt-cache policy udev
  Installed: 124-2
  Candidate: 124-2
  Version table:
 *** 124-2 0
        500 http://free.nchc.org.tw intrepid/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

In /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/udev, /lib/udev/cdrom_id is not copy_exec to initramfs. Sometimes we do need /lib/udev/cdrom_id, especially in the live CD.

In Debian Lenny, the
includes this:
for program in /lib/udev/*_id; do
  copy_exec $program /lib/udev/
Is that possible the udev from intrepid copy_exec the /lib/udev/cdrom_id to initramfs,, as Debian lenny does ?

What calls cdrom_id in the initramfs? No udev rules are shipped to do that

Actually it's live-initramfs (http://packages.debian.org/live-initramfs) from Debian live need this. I use live-initramfs to create a Ubuntu live, but when this ubuntu live boots, the live-initramfs will use /lib/udev/cdrom_id to detect the cdrom and map /dev/cdrom... something like that.

Then live-initramfs should copy cdrom_id in
