Compiling "out-of-tree" module against own kernel package
I am currently running about 12 PCs with Sarge across the country. On each machine I am running a "kernel.org" kernel (+custom patches) AND need to compile a out-of-tree module for these kermels.
I basically download a tarball from kernel.org, (126.96.36.199 most recently), patch as appropriate then make a kernel-image and kernel-headers package on a central machine which I install on all the other machines. I am create the .deb packages using:
> make-kpkg clean
> fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --revision=1.0 kernel_image kernel_headers
This works well. However on the "client" machines I cannot then compile
out-of-tree module. The kernel_headers package seems to be missing many of the required make files and the scripts directly entirely (see below). I don't see the need to create a "source" package.
Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug in the kernel-headers packaging?
