What else do you suspect could be meant with "new kernel with make-

Please just grab linux-source-2.6.15 2.6.15-7 from unstable.
I have fetched the sources of the latest stabel kernel from
kernel.org in the meantime. And make-kpgk has build a new kernel-
package. But I gor warnings and FATAL errors at the end like:
188.8.131.52clara/kernel/drivers/macintosh/windfarm_core.ko needs unknown
WARNING: Couldn't open directory debian/tmp-image/lib/modules/
184.108.40.206: No such file or directory
FATAL: Could not open debian/tmp-image/lib/modules/220.127.116.11/
modules.dep.temp for writing: No such file or directory
make: [real_stamp_image] Error 1 (ignored)
Maybe, it makes sense to give it another try with sources from
unstable, if there really no udev update is needed as the newer udev
seems to work up from kernel 2.6.12 only according to the bug reports.
I guess that if you intent to build your kernel, you are big enough
that "you need to include" translate in adding a -I flag to gcc :)
No, why? All the other custom I have made the last ten years, could
be build without knowing that.
Its called linux-image, and no, i don't mean backports.org, just
official etch/sid kernels (2.6.15-7) and install them on your sarge
This is what i do, with a rebuilt yaird, on both my powerbook and
pegasos machine, works just fine, except for the udev problem.
I looked, if it was possible to install a kernel from Testing. But it
wants to upgrade some essential things. So it seems not to make sense
to take a risk on a running system for me.
Well, on my powerbook the only things that i saw that cause
problems is that
pbbuttonsd doesn't aknowledge keyboard strokes as activity, only mouse
movement, but it could be something else, as pbbuttonsd also from
time to time
go into low-power-screen mode and refuses to go out of it.
That does not sound good, but may be no problem with the Mac Mini.
I'll give it a last try next weekend, I think.
For yaboot it is enought to have a loupe and something like
in the config to boot with the old kernel, if something goes wrong?
