Bug Description

Binary package hint: initramfs-tools

Problem came up after upgrade to jaunty where iscsi root support was added. Path to the iscsistart binary is /sbin/iscsistart not /usr/sbin/iscsistart as used in the copy_exec call of /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hook/iscsi. Changing it to

copy_exec /sbin/iscsistart /sbin

fixes the error.

Release notes text added:

== iSCSI upgrades fail to generate initramfs ==

Upgrades of systems using iSCSI will fail to generate the initramfs. As a workaround, edit `/usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/iscsi` and change this line: {{{
copy_exec /usr/sbin/iscsistart /sbin
}}} to this: {{{
copy_exec /sbin/iscsistart /sbin
}}} This will be fixed in a post-release update. (Bug:364616)
