Re: how to build Debian 2.4.20, -21, or -22 kernel package for woody?

What exactly do I need to do to build locally for woody a Debian kernel package based on a kernel version from testing or unstable?

I've tried some combinations starting with "apt-get source", but
ended up with a kernel package that requires other packages that
are not in woody (and which in fact conflict with packages required
by my woody kernel package).

Thanks,

What you need is at least kernel-package and kernel-source-2.4.xx.

Kernel source packages are special in that they are installed via apt-get install kernel-source-xxxxx, and what that does is put a .tar.bz2 file in your /usr/src. You untar that file and build the kernel from there.

If you are new to building kernels, check out this great guide on Debian's kernel-package tool:
