Could anyone give me a quick bullet-point list of the stages of building
a 2.6.8 powerpc kernel?

I'm used to the traditional method, but I'd like to do it the Debian

apt-get install kernel-source-2.6.8
cd /usr/src
tar xvjf kernel-source-2.6.8.tar.bz2
cd kernel-source-2.6.8
make-kpkg --config=menuconfig configure
make-kpkg binary
cd ..
dpkg -i kernel*2.6.8*.deb

I'm on the right track then. I've got to well through the build until:

*** No rule to make target `drivers/net/tg3.c', needed by
`drivers/net/tg3.o'.  Stop.

stops the build. :-(

Thought I'd missed something..

I've disabled the Broadcom tigon driver in config which fixed this...

It's late again - doh... ;-)

That driver was pulled from Debian kernel sources due to binary blobs in the source. You can
patch it back in but I doubt you need to for PPC.

Isn't there a package for this though? I thought that code was simply moved to non-free.

Ben, was this configed in the kernel sources or did you just enable it by accident? Debian
kernel sources right?

A lot of the new Dell 1u PE servers are using this Broadcom chipset these days.
