kernel backporting on etch with "apt-get source"


I have found a way to re-create the "official" linux-image*.deb packages using the apt-get source command [1]:

apt-get source -t unstable linux-image-2.6.24-1-686-bigmem
cd linux-2.6-2.6.24
fakeroot debian/rules debian/build debian/stamps
fakeroot make -f debian/rules.gen binary-arch_i386_none_686-bigmem

which will create


However, I can't install linux-headers-2.6.24-1-686-bigmem_2.6.24-2_i386.deb, because it depends on


and I could not figure out how to build this package using the makefile system of the debian kernel source. I downloaded the package from the repository and could continue, but I would like to be able to actually build linux-headers-2.6.24-1-common myself to avoid inconsistencies. I tried the "binary-indep" target, but without success.

Any ideas?

Cheers, Stefan
