Description: Debian Live initramfs hook
 live-initramfs is a hook for the initramfs-tools, used to generate a
initramfs
 capable to boot live systems, such as those created by live-helper.
This
 includes the Debian Live isos, netboot tarballs, and usb stick images.
 .
 At boot time it will look for a (read-only) media containing a "/live"
 directory where a root filesystems (often a compressed filesystem image
like
 squashfs) is stored. If found, it will create a writable environment,
using
 aufs or unionfs, for Debian like systems to boot from.
 .
 You probably do not want to install this package onto a non-live
system,
 although it will do no harm.
 .
 live-initramfs is a fork of casper
<http://packages.ubuntu.com/casper/>.



This happened while doing a full Mint 12.04 LMDE LXDE 32bit reinstall
trying to recover from fatal usb storage reboot non-flush data corruption
(quite likely kernel issue, f*ck).


I installed base ISO, completed a dist-upgrade,
then grabbed the package list of the previous broken install
and installed all of those packages that were installable,
and at this step things failed.


Possibly something is missing a Conflicts: header somewhere,
or something else?

Thanks!

Andreas Mohr

i'm sorry that you're using such an outdated distribution containing 
live-initramfs (lenny), we don't support lenny->wheezy/sid updates 
directly. the proper way is to go the supported 
lenny->squeeze->wheezy/sid way.

Fair enough. I guess I got confused in mirror setup.

I cannot provide exact details of what I did to work around this
(don't have paper trail any more), but dpkg -r
of a couple live-related packages (obviously I don't need them)
and then continuing the dist-upgrade resolved it,
with minor complications only.

Thank you for your fast reply!

Andreas Mohr
