Generating a Lenny Netinst CD with a newer kernel
Since the lenny netinst CD recognized neither the RAID controller, nor the networking card of our server (a dell poweredge r710), we decided to build ourselves a custom lenny installer cd using a newer installer kernel.
We tried to follow these tutorials:
We used the kernel from lenny_backports (2.6.29).
After figuring out that kernel-wedge had to be upgraded to its unstable version, we managed to build the udebs, and moved them to build/localudebs.
We than found out that we had to uncomment monolithic in build/config/amd64.cfg to make the build_monolithic target available.
However, "make build_monolithic" fails with "E: Konnte Paket acpi-modules-2.6.29-2-amd64-di nicht finden" (Transl.: could not find packet acpi-modules-2.6.29-2-amd64-di)
Furthermore, there is a lot of stuff like "fat-modules-2.6.26-1-amd64-di" in the package list, even though we have only build udebs for 2.6.29, and changed the KERNELVESION parameter in build/config/amd64.cfg accordingly.
We tried copying the line "deb copy:/usr/src/debian-installer-20090123lenny1/build/ localudebs/" from build/sources.list.udeb to /etc/apt/sources.list. Now we can download the module acpi-modules-2.6.29-2-amd64-di using normal apt-get. So the build script really _should_ find the packages, shouldn't it?
What are we doing wrong? And what about the 2.6.26 packages?
