Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kernel-package

Distribution: Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04
Sources: linux-source-2.6.29 (git)

# Prepare
$ make-kpkg --initrd --rootcmd fakeroot -us -uc debian
$ echo > debian/official
$ dch

# Now it should only be to build ...
$ make-pkg
or whatever ...
$ debuild
$ pdebuild

# It produces a linux-image with a /boot/vmlinux-2.6.29 but no initrd.

# I try to build with this:
$ make-kpkg --initrd --rootcmd fakeroot -us -uc kernel_image

# Same result

I have tried to set do_initird = "yes" in debian/pkg/config and INITRD =
"yes" in debian/rules but without success.

What variable is it that sets to build an initrd.img file and why does
not make-kpkg work?
