I tried to build it the traditional way (make instead of make-kpkg
kernel_image) and this seems to work. Here the Kernel image is placed in
arch/powerpc/boot/ and not arch/ppc/bot/
It has been mentioned in this thread that there was a name change so I
make-kpkg --arch powerpc kernel_image
but this seems to be ignored. Maybe the whole problem is #344833 or
#342767. I'll retry with a newer kernel-package
BTW, my selfcompilied kernel (with make not make-kpkg) doesn't boot. It fails
with: VFS: Cannot open root device "hda6" or unknown block ...
I don't use initrd (and never did) so I guess I forgot to activate an
important option which prevents the kernel to read hda6. Any ideas? Any
.config files for me which work with recent 2.6.17-rc kernels?
