Package: kernellab
Version: 0.2.5
Severity: important

Documentation is sorely lacking.  There is no indication of how to
setup kernellab only a brief reference of:

   Say someone discovers a denial of service -attack in the linux TCP/IP
   stack. So you wait two hours till Alan Cox puts out a new -ac42
   patch, download this patch and put in to
   /var/state/kernellab/alancox/patch-n.n.n-ac42.bz2. Now, all you need
   to do to recompile the new, fixed, kernel for all your routers, is

   for a in router1 router2 router3 ...; do kernellab "$a"; done

Sure, but how does one setup kernellab in the first place?

Through reading the config file it is found that the kernel sources are
to be stored compressed as gz or bz2 files, but this isn't in the
documentation anywhere.

Additionally kernellab can't handle Debian kernel sources package names
of kernel-source-n.n.n.tar.bz2 (#121201).  It also expect the kernel 
source archive to unpack into a directory called "linux" based on the
error message (#176200).

Are the configs to be named in any special way?  I was not able to find
the naming convention to get kernallab to use my existing kernel config.

These assumptions/requirements should be documented in the package

kernellab has been removed from Debian because it's orphaned upstream
and doesn't work with current kernels.  (See Bug#264219.)
