Description Kolbjørn Barmen 2010-10-05 08:32:08 UTC
Line 570 in /usr/share/genkernel/defaults/initrd.scripts says:

        if [ "${USE_MDADM}" -eq '1' ]

this should be

        if [ "${USE_MDADM}" = '1' ]

as "${USE_MDADM}" might be an empty string, and then -eq will fail.

There are other simliar checks in the same script, and they all use = instead of -eq.

Reproducible: Always

Excellent catch, thanks for reporting.
