I tried kernel-package_8.135_all.deb. make-kpkg clean does not give
the above errors. The kernel compiles with --bzimage but fails if I
change to --initrd.
I must have installed some packages from the unstable branch and they
are screwing up kernel-package, somehow. I hope it will straighten
itself out in a week or so.
Real programmers disdain structured programming. Structured programming
is for compulsive neurotics who were prematurely toilet-trained. They
wear neckties and carefully line up pencils on otherwise clear desks.
