But why do it otherway when the debian way of compiling a kernel is to use
If your otherwise is to manually compile the module I want and copy it to
the appropriate folder, then I don't agree. That module won't be part of
that particular kernel-image package then.
What would I tell my friends/customers then ? Install this package and then
copy this module to this particular directory ?
Please let us know if there is anyway of achieving it withing make-kpkg.
