Description Drake Wyrm 2003-09-03 11:19:02 UTC
When genkernel runs, it creates the file /tmp/initrd.gz, but doesn't clean up
before exiting.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run genkernel
2. ls /tmp
3. Profit!

Actual Results:  
genkernel debris in /tmp

Expected Results:  
genkernel should clean up after itself

I am leaving out the 'emerge info' dump, as this seems pretty irrelavent. This
bug could be fixed by either changing 'cp -f ${TEMP}/initrd.gz
/boot/initrd-${KV}' to 'mv -f ${TEMP}/initrd.gz /boot/initrd-${KV}' in the
initrd() function or by adding  'rm -f ${TEMP}/initrd.gz' to the finish() function.
