I have been trying to find the answer to this problem on and off for
a month or so. I can't compile a kernel using kpkg without getting
VT3 root-3-ETCH:/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.17# make-kpkg --revision 1:buddy.2.2.17 --initrd kernel_image
exec make -f /usr/share/kernel-package/ruleset/minimal.mk debian DEBIAN_REVISION=1:buddy.2.2.17 INITRD=YES

make: *** No rule to make target `/ruleset/misc/config.mk'. Stop.
Failed to create a ./debian directory: No such file or directory at /usr/bin/make-kpkg line 1074.
THe same thing with
make-kpkg --revision 1:buddy.2.2.17 --bzimage kernel_image
I have also tried different version of the kernel-package.
Without any success so it must be something else.
The kernels I tried it on are:
As I did not find any mention of this (Google, Debian Bugs, D-U)
I must be doing something very wrong here.
Thank God for the old standbys make dep ; make clean ; make etc.......
Anyone have any pointers to what I have missed?
