i've been trying to look this up, but not found anything yet.
up until now i have been compiling the kernel using the regular steps of make config, make ... ....
so, now i wanna try the debian way. my kernel source is /home/ksrc/.
i have a symlink in /usr/src called linux which points to the kernel src tree. i go into this linux folder and run a "make-kpkg .... kernel_image" command, which makes a kernelxxx.deb file in /usr/src. i think thats fine.
now, i got the alsa drivers and utils using apt-get. it goes and saves the tars under /usr/src. according to the install help here http://www.sonic.net/~rknop/linux/debian_alsa.html,
it is suggested to do a "make-kpkg ....modules_image" after the kernel image was built. when i do that, only the alsa drivers are built, nothing else (im thinking that make-kpkg looks at /usr/src).
this is just looking too messy. what do i do to install the modules i had selected before running the make-kpkg for the kernel-image? when do they get moved to the right location? do we have to do a "make modules_install" in the debian way?
any help is needed.
also, can someone tell me what is the option that is to be selected in the kernel for enabling "soundcore"? thanks.
