OESF Portables Forum _ Gemini PDA - Linux _ where is update-gemian-boot-image?

Posted by: Eric BF Jun 14 2019, 07:51 AM

Following the thread on the camera (internal) and trying to get mine working, I decided to install gemian-desktop-minimal. This led to needing to install gemian-modular-kernel. However, this installation fails with the following error:

CODE
/var/lib/dpkg/info/gemian-modular-kernel:arm64.postinst: line 12: update-gemian-boot-image: command not found

I cannot seem to find any package that has the update-gemian-boot-image. I have just done an apt update but do not want to do an apt upgrade as I prefer updating as minimally as possible. I use my system every day and don't wan to break it.

Any suggestions?

Oh, I should add that I have stretch-backports enabled in apt as well, but only for one or two packages that I needed for work.

It is in initramfs-tools-halium. I think I have not installed it manually.

sudo apt install initramfs-tools-halium
should help.

From checking the source initramfs-tools-halium is a dependency of gemian-modular-kernel, so I wonder why it did not get installed automatically.

Thank you. I did have that package installed already but it was a version a month older than what is current. Updating that package made update-gemian-boot-image available now. I guess the gemian-modular-kernel package should have a more specific version dependency for initramfs-tools-halium.

Now to reboot the gemini. Fingers crossed! unsure.gif
