I booted to a kernel panic and realised there was no  initrd.img being created


so I then used as root in a console :


update-initramfs -c -k 4.2.4-towo.1-siduction-amd64


and all is ok now

Hello,

we have confirmed the issue.
The creation of the initrd was not triggered during install, though the packaging wasn't modified in regard of the trigger.

thx pjnsmb and dibl, this is a valid workaround:
Code: [Select]
update-initramfs -c -k 4.2.4-towo.1-siduction-amd64
update-grub

greetings
