Errors . . . processing: initramfs-tools

#1 Postby arjaybe » Mon Jun 25, 2012 2:06 pm

Attn: timkb4cq. This involves the teharris.net repos.

I recently upgraded to KDE 4.7.4 via the above repos, and all went very well. There was only one glitch. Before it completed I started getting messages that the repos were not found, and now I get this error every time I do an upgrade:

Code: Select all

Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.2.0-0.bpo.2-amd64
E: /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/plymouth failed with return 1.
update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-3.2.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 with 1.
dpkg: error processing initramfs-tools (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
configured to not write apport reports
                                      Errors were encountered while processing:
 initramfs-tools


I think I might be able to get by this if I can install libdrm and plymouth-drm. Unfortunately, when I try to do that I get the following error:

Code: Select all

W: Failed to fetch http://teharris.net/mepiscr/kde/pool/test/libd/libdrm/libdrm-intel1_2.4.26-1mcr110+1_amd64.deb

Is there a way to get at those repos, or are there alternate repos?

Thanks

Pretty much the same issue I had upgrading to 4.6.5. This thread might help... My solution was to download the deb 'manually' from the link provided in the reply to my post then dpkg -i it.

Thanks. I'll give that a try.

edit: That worked. I was able to do it through Synaptic by enabling the community TEST repos for the libdrm... files, then I was able to install plymouth-drm and initramfs-tools ran successfully.
