Bug#4500: kernel-package fails when used on kernel-source
I have kernel-source-2.0.6 installed (which patches cleanly with Linus'
patches for more recent kernels) and used to role my kernels with the scripts
from the kernel-source package, eg
./debian.rules kernel_image and therefore
have a directory /usr/src/linux/debian with all the Debian control file for
the various targets.
Now I installed the newer kernel-package, and it fails! When I execute
make-kpkg --revision edd.1 kernel_image
it correctly infers that it has to start
but this file because of the code tests
if [ -d "debian/" ]
which is true because of the directory from the old kernel-source-2.0.6
package. It then tries to execute
make -f /usr/src/kernel-source-2.0.6/debian/kernel.rules build
which fails because _this_ debian directory contains no kernel.rules file.
The following patch fixes this for me:
miles:/usr/lib/kernel-package/debian [root] # diff -u kernel.rules*
--- kernel.rules Sun Sep 15 13:02:53 1996
+++ kernel.rules.orig Sun Sep 15 13:02:25 1996

+DEBDIR := $(shell if [ -d "debian/" ]; \

There are still a couple of typos and spelling mistakes all over
kernel-package, and the READMEs seem to be a wild mix of old and new ones.
Also, does this really belong into the misc section?
