Re: Compilation linux-source-2.6.18
Thank you for looking at this.
My build instructions come from the man page for make-kpkg.
(Is that what you meant?)
In other words what I did was:
unpack the archive
make-kpkg --initrd linux-image
That procedure should be common to all architectures,
but in the previous release hppa was an exception. There
was a separate package called something like kernel-patch-2.6.8-hppa
which had to be manually applied.
There is no such patch available in the latest release, so I
assumed (until compilation failed) that the hppa-specific stuff
had been incorporated into the standard debian kernel
source package as for the other architectures.
When you say you get the same thing with the
linux-source-2.6.18 tar ball do you mean you tried it with the
standard (non Debian) source code? That is interesting.
