@eNV25 Thank you! It works now.

@yegorius I changed the number to 40.

Hello. I an using this hook with booster and I'm having a problem. During kernel update (or any other pacman action which triggers the remove hook) "kernel-install remove" deletes the modules.alias file from the new kernel directory, while Booster needs it to create an initrd. The particular hook execution sequence is like this:
60-depmod // creates modules.alias for the new kernel
60-kernel-install-remove // deletes modules.alias for the new kernel
90-booster-install // attempts to create the initrd but fails because it can't find modules.alias
The fix is very simple: we need to move 60-kernel-install-remove before the 60-depmod (e.g. 50-kernel-install-remove)

OK, done.

Thanks for replying, I meant that a trigger for Booster for this hook should maybe be added, in case Booster updates like Dracut/mkinitcpio can. Also, I went with Booster + systemd-ukify, creating a simple pacman hook that calls a ukify script after Booster's hook, instead of kernel-install. I might write a kernel-install plugin for Booster in the future, or maybe ask its developer.

This hook only calls the kernel-install command. To use it with booster you need a kernel-install hook that calls booster. See the kernel-install manual page for more information.

Hi, and thanks for this package.

Does this already supports Booster? Or is there no extra step required?

Edit 1:

I added Target = usr/lib/booster/* to both hooks (and had to disable checksum checking). I'll see if I'll have any pleasant surprises.
