Re: pre-built pwc modules for official debian kernel
perhaps a bit off-topic but we had the discussion already a while ago,
and I don't come further on what is the "Right Thing To Do".
My understanding after the last discussion is that:
- if one use a standard kernel, say kernel-image-2.6.10-1-k7
- one install as well kernel-headers-2.6.10-1-k7
- this and make-kpkg should be enough to compile the Debian way external
modules (like pwc).
Nevertheless, if I try to compile pwc as non-root (how it should be, in
my understanding), I get the following error:
ericl@zorglub:/usr/src/kernel-headers-2.6.10-1-k7$ fakeroot make-kpkg
--added_modules pwc-source modules_image

(echo "# Dummy file "; echo "help:") >

So, did I misunderstood something, or is someone/something else the

I created the pwc-source package  and now its in new queue pending to be included on sid .
Sean Finney its my sponsor but We have no experience on kernel modules packages. And We want to make
pre-built modules for official debian kernel in order to make things easier to the users.
How this staff works? What source packages should I take a look?
