as usual the only good way to solve a problem
is thinking you are alone and no one will really
helping you when you get in trouble.
I didn't reply to every posts here 'cause
I understood there wasn't a quick solution,
so I prefer solve my problem rather than replying
posts and solve nothing, maybe it was not a good
I used to read the Ubuntu wike for having the
best details about my Edgy-box,
I found a good italian how-to here:
it advises me to use these commands:
sudo make-kpkg --append-to-version=-custom --initrd kernel_image kernel_headers modules_image
Unfortunately I get in trouble with these,
in the end, after dpkg installation of packages,
no directory for the new kernel is create di /lib/modules
--> Solution <--
The problem is, if you want a Ramdisk image,
but it's really unuseful for a custom kernel
(you'll get a slower boot time!),
so if need a Ramdisk these are correct commands,
in correct order
sudo make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-custom kernel_image kernel_headers modules_image
In this way I have no problem!
If only people who writes in wiki cares about it
there are no more problem like this.
It's not a silly consideration, in fact an official wiki
should be written to solve problem, especially considering
wrong commands lie on the italian official Ubuntu wiki,
so I spent a lot of time before considering a Ubuntu wiki fault.
I'm not a seasoned Unix geek, so I only find that
order of instructions didn't work, but putting --initrd
before --append-to-version=-mynewkernel everything
seems to work perfectly.
I write this post for trying to be useful,
so please be patient if I seem angry,
but I lost a lot of time because of a really
simply solution --> next time I'll reply posts :-)
