View Full Version : update hangs on initramfs-tools

February 7th, 2010, 09:01 PM
This is a fresh install of the latest version of Ubuntu-Server under the latest version of vmware desktop, I have installed the ubuntu-desktop package and ran all updates which completed fine. Upon trying trying to install then open vmware tools package the install hangs at this part:

Running post-installation trigger initramfs-tools

Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.31-19-server

It has been on this process for the last 3 hours and hasn't changed, the system is still operational at this point. Any ideas on what might be the issue would be appreciated.
