Have modified the script, $VER is "3.13.2", to do a make install ahead of
the

mkinitramfs -o/boot/initrd-$VER.img $VER && \

line but these directories:
now making a new /boot/initrd.3.13.2.img
find: `/lib/modules/3.13.2/kernel/arch': No such file or directory
find: `/lib/modules/3.13.2/kernel/arch': No such file or directory
find: `/lib/modules/3.13.2/kernel/arch/': No such file or directory
find: `/lib/modules/3.13.2/kernel/arch/': No such file or directory
find: `/lib/modules/3.13.2/kernel/arch/': No such file or directory
find: `/lib/modules/3.13.2/kernel/arch/': No such file or directory
find: `/lib/modules/3.13.2/kernel/arch/': No such file or directory
find: `/lib/modules/3.13.2/kernel/arch/': No such file or directory
find: `/lib/modules/3.13.2/kernel/arch/': No such file or directory
and copying it to initrd-3.13.2.img

are still not being made, initrd-$VER.img is not being made, and that path
does not exist in the /etc/initramfs-tools directory. initramfs-tools has
been re-installed.

I'm stuck. Where can I buy a paddle? :)

Thanks.

Cheers, Gene
