compiling a kernel from kernel.org


in the new last days I've been trying to compile a recent kernel from kernel.org

I fetched a kernel from http://www.kernel.org/

mainline:	2.6.32-rc5	2009-10-16	[Full Source]

unpacked it using tar xjvf linux-2.6.32-rc5.tar.bz2 -C /usr/src
linked : ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.32-rc5.tar.bz2 /usr/src/linux

cp /boot/config-`uname -r` /usr/src/linux/.config
make oldconfig

then I started building the packages with

make-kpkg buildpackage --revision 20091016 --initrd

it started compiling it and it ended after a loinger time with :

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.32-rc5'
dpkg-genchanges -b -mUnknown Kernel Package Maintainer <unknown@unconfigured.in.etc.kernel-pkg.conf>

dpkg-buildpackage: binary only upload (no source included)

following packages have been created in /usr/src:


ok, so far - it looked good even thouigh that "xenu" part annoyed me somehow.

when I treid to install linux-xenu-2.6.32-rc5_20091016_amd64.deb

I got:

pegasos:/usr/src# dpkg -i linux-xenu-2.6.32-rc5_20091016_amd64.deb

Obviously something is badly wrong then.
I am using Debian Unstable with kernel 2.6.31 (Linux pegasos 2.6.31-trunk-amd64 #1 SMP Mon Oct 12 23:36:11 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux) and Grub2

anyone has an idea whats wrong here? Or am I doing it completely wrong?

Thx for reading at least...
