Re: compiling a kernel from kernel.org [SOLVED]


Thx everybody for your quick answers and friendly help.

You were right. I removed all Xen options from the kernel config and


has been built.
Installing it with "dpkg -i ..." worked fine.
The only problem to be solved was the initrd. it has NOT been generated by dpkg during the installation. so I generated it using mkinitramfs -c -k 2.6.32-rc5. worked fine. update-grub - worked fine as well.

Finally I can use KMS with my radeon 4670 :)

        Well, firstly, if you are going to be using the buildpackage
 target, instead of the far faster kernel_image target, you should
 either configure /etc/kernel-pkg.conf, adding your name and email, and
 have that in a keyring your gpg knows about, or pass the --us and --uc
 arguments on the command line.

        I think, unless you know what you are doing, try first with
 kernel_image target.

        Next, you seem to have Xen options turned on in your config, and
 thus make-kpkg is trying to create a xenu-linux image. This is
 undergoing some development, so if you want Xen images, please get the
 12.024 version of kernel-package from Sid.

        If you are just trying to build a normal kernel, redo your
 .config not to have Xen stuff in it.
