Sure, but kernel-package has been something buggy lately, ... It should be
fixed now though, ...

Ok, i had to hand generate the control files, because i did not understand how
you can do signed package with make-kpkg kernel-image. (i know it now, you
cannot, you have to do a build_all or whatever the rule was called).

Err, ... i was not speaking about boot-floppies, but just the console-data
stuff, i think it has some problems still on apus when installing this
package, but then it may be solved, will look at it more deeply this weekend.
I still only have a the version from last week at home.
I will build the apus boot floppies myself, they don't yet build for you,
since you have to apply some patches (have to put them in the cvs version) and
you need a boot-floppies friendly amiga-fdisk.
Does someone know how to make multi binary arches (i want a version of
amiga-fdisk that is compiled against libreadline in amiga-fdisk, and one
compiled without it for the boot floppies in package amiga-fdisk-bf)
And no doc about that seems available anywhere, i didn't find anything in the
debhelper source either, but didn't look too long.
