You have been subscribed to a public bug:
I have multiple linux distributions installed on my computer with a
shared /boot partition. I have had this configuration working for a
while now with ubuntu as one of the distributions. With jaunty, updates
break the boot process every time there is a kernel update and dselect
attempts to regenerate initramfs as it incorrectly selects the image
from another distribution rather than the ubuntu image. The error
message is as follows:
Setting up initramfs-tools (0.92bubuntu21) ...
update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)
Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-initrd-18.104.22.168-desktop-1mnb.img
Cannot find /lib/modules/initrd-22.214.171.124-desktop-1mnb.img
update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-initrd-126.96.36.199-desktop-1mnb.img
dpkg: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
In this case, deselect is trying to update the initrd image for Mandriva - instead of regenerating the ubuntu image: initrd.img-2.6.28-8-generic
