       dh_installinitramfs - install initramfs hooks and setup maintscripts


       dh_installinitramfs [debhelperĀ options] [-n]


       dh_installinitramfs is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing Debian
       package provided initramfs hooks.

       If dh_installinitramfs installs or detects one or more initramfs hooks in the package,
       then it also automatically generates the noawait trigger update-initframfs command needed
       to interface with the Debian initramfs system.  This trigger is inserted into the
       packaging by dh_installdeb(1).


           Assumed to be an initramfs hook that will be installed into
           usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/package in the package build directory. See HOOK
           SCRIPTS in initramfs-tools(8) for more information about initramfs hooks.


       -n, --no-scripts
           Do not add the update-initramfs trigger even if it seems like the package might need
           it.  The option is called --no-scripts for historical reasons as dh_installinitramfs
           would previously generate maintainer scripts that called update-initramfs -u.

           Use this option, if you need to interface with the update-initramfs system that is not
           satisfied by the noawait trigger (e.g. because you need the extra guarantees and head-
           aches of a await trigger).


       Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be called between invocations
       of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple instances of the same text to be added
       to triggers file.
