Re: Making simple-cdd pull another kernel from repository


I've managed to include the etchnhalf kernel (2.6.24) into the image.
To do so I've copied debian-cd files to a directory in my simple_cdd_dir
and added to my-profile.conf:


Then I configured debian-cd/tools/generate_di+k_list, in i386 arch section as:


And it works. The strange thing is that I had to add linux-images and
packages to my-profile.packages. I thought configuring debian-cd it
should pull those kernels from repository. But, anyway, it worked.
