New version of kernel-package now in unstable
This brings to an end an enhancement for kernel-package that
have been in development for over an year. These changes make
kernel-package more nimble (you can just update the sources, hack on a
file, and run make-kpkg and it should just work to incorporate your
changes, no need for clean).
It also pulls out the postint functionality into hook scripts,
using the same /etc/kernel.d infrastructure as upstreams native deb-pkg
target, but provides for more packages.
Also supported now is a linux-image-$version-dbg package, that
contains just the debugging information, and which is compatible with
Looking at the reverse dependencies, there should be no impact
whatsoever on the module packages; everything should still work the
However, since ./debian is now ephemeral, anyone who puts things
in ./debian will be affected. Those users should depend on
kernel-package (<< 12.001). The only user I know of that did that
was linux-2.6, but since kernel-package has been deprecated and
pronounced broken by the kernel team, this is not an issue: if it is
deprecated, and obsolescent, development if kernel-package need not be
tied to linux-2.6. In any case, official kernels are no longer
supported as of k-p 12.001.
