Re: SC420 problem with Debian make-kpkg (fwd)
Yes, my issues with the 2.4.28 kernel are similar plus I need to incorporate a
module for a VOIP card.
A couple questions:
I've been using as my reference in learning how to do this:
Osamu Aoki <email@example.com>
Editor: David Sewell <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I want to be clear about your procedure so have these questions.
For context, here are the very recent steps from that text used. The exception
is that the text expects one to use fakeroot and I'm logged in as root. Thus,
we have a kernel source loaded and their recommended packages loaded, and:
Prompt# cd /usr/src # build directory
Prompt# tar --bzip2 -xvf kernel-source-2.6.10.tar.bz2
Prompt# cd kernel-source-2.6.10 # if this is your kernel source
# cp /boot/config-<2.4.18-386>.config # get current config as default
Here, I may have screwed up. I interpretted "current" in the accompanying
comment as my current 2.4.28 config. In fact, in /boot I do not have a 2.6.10
config file of any kind I don't believe. That's why I interpretted the text as
I did. So, are you saying that instead of the command
# cp /boot/config-<2.4.28.config
I should use the command
I can see where a wrong config file could make a big difference. I'll check
around and see if I did receive this file in the Debian package.
prompt# make menuconfig # customize as one wishes
I did not run this command, electing to use the default configuration for
The reference then instruct one to run:
which is where I fail. Are you saying that maybe this is a wrong instruction
or a misunderstood instruction and that I should :
# make-kpkg --append-to-version "-1-686" --revision 2.6.10-1 |
Thanks very much.
