Description Volker Wegert 2022-08-11 11:00:20 UTC
In my genkernel setup, I'm using KERNEL_FILENAME and KERNEL_SYMLINK_FILENAME to change the names of the files installed to /boot (reason: a "production" and a "maintenance" installation sharing the same boot partition - this is used to keep the files separated). I would like to move from genkernel to distribution kernels for easier maintenance, but I'm missing this feature. Would it be possible to add it?

Reproducible: Always

I suspect you can configure installkernel somehow to do this.
