The /sbin/installkernel script was moved to the kernel-install-tools package, which is already available for download.

With a recent Tumbleweed snapshot (probably 20211023), the utility installkernel was removed from /usr/sbin. Without this code, a kernel 'make install' returns "Cannot find LILO.". I could not tell if I was in a decades-long time warp, or if Linda Walsh had gained control. Copying the one from my Leap 15.3 partition restored the functionality.
In Leap 15.3, this file is in the dracut package, but definitey missing in Tumbleweed.
has remove /sbin/installkernel script from dracut package
That came in via https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/923450 but unfortunately, not with a good git-style commit message that explains the "Why?"
I wonder if a symlink of installkernel to /usr/bin/true would also work.
