live-update-initramfs - writes out updated kernel and initrd images to the live media.


live-update-initramfs is a wrapper replacing the update-initramfs com‐ mand provided by the initramfs-tools package. In live-systems with a persistence layer, live-update-initramfs will write out updated kernel and initrd images to the live media. This allows kernel upgrades from within the live-system through apt-get without needing to manually synchronise kernel and initrd to the live-medium. live-update-initramfs passes through all command-line arguments to the original update-initramfs command; see update-initramfs.orig.initramfs-tools(8) for more information about the options of the original update-initramfs command.
