Correcting myself! sorry. not sure anyone cares. I said "make deb-pkg" didn't leave me any .deb ** "make deb-pkg" did make 4 .deb packages. they are in "$(srctree)/../", and one I tried is good."make tar-pkg" leaves it in "$(srctree)/" and I'm still unsure how i would know to look in ".." but no matter, no matter !
Thanks - John ** (I said "make deb-pkg" left a tree of files in $(srctree)/debian, which it did do)
