NAME         top

       dh_installinitramfs - install initramfs hooks and setup

SYNOPSIS         top

       dh_installinitramfs [debhelper options] [-n]

DESCRIPTION         top

       dh_installinitramfs is a debhelper program that is responsible
       for installing Debian package provided initramfs hooks.

       If dh_installinitramfs installs or detects one or more initramfs
       hooks in the package, then it also automatically generates the
       noawait trigger update-initframfs command needed to interface
       with the Debian initramfs system.  This trigger is inserted into
       the packaging by dh_installdeb(1).

FILES         top

           Assumed to be an initramfs hook that will be installed into
           usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/package in the package build
           directory. See HOOK SCRIPTS in initramfs-tools(8) for more
           information about initramfs hooks.

OPTIONS         top

       -n, --no-scripts
           Do not add the update-initramfs trigger even if it seems like
           the package might need it.  The option is called --no-scripts
           for historical reasons as dh_installinitramfs would
           previously generate maintainer scripts that called update-
           initramfs -u.

           Use this option, if you need to interface with the update-
           initramfs system that is not satisfied by the noawait trigger
           (e.g. because you need the extra guarantees and head-aches of
           a await trigger).

NOTES         top

       Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be
       called between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may
       cause multiple instances of the same text to be added to triggers
