A brief description of the Debian way is in the Debian documentation, if you have that installed.

It requires quite a few packages, and it depends on the Debian patched kernel. If you use the vanilla kernel, you may need to use the standard way.

I have used it on plain kernels many times.  I have never seen any
indication it requries any debian patches.  make-kpkg doesn't seem to

That's good to know.

Although, I think that there is an issue. I get a series of "'modules.dep' file not found"-type error messages early on boot. I have been wondering if it is something I have done wrong, or there is something wrong with the build process. The system still seems to run perfectly well after the init process completes. I only get that message when I build a custom kernel. A kernel image from sid installed through apt boots fine.

This may not be an AMD64 only issue, thus OT.

Am I missing something?
