Debian kernels


I have found a few apt-get install kernel-source how-to's but wouldn't mind some recommendations if anyone has any. 1 2

I've read the docs in /usr/share/doc/kernel-package. It appears that all the headers and libraries are included for all arch.'s with the Debian kernels so that shold be fairly straightforward. I wonder what if anything has changed since the documentation was written? Thanks for any pointers.

Thanks-I had also seen that one as well. What I didn't see addressed tho was what to do if you fail to make it through make-kpkg. I do a make-kpkg clean- is that all I need to do? It seems as though there would still be some junk around somewhere. I dunno....

As far as I know yes, I've followed it and I had no problems at all, also installation you can also delete the deb file created to install your new kernel.

When you say "What I didn't see addressed tho was what to do if you fail to make it through make-kpkg. I do a make-kpkg clean- is that all I need to do?" -- what do you mean? Are you getting an error when you run "make-kpkg clean" ?

Nah- I was just wondering since I'd never used the Debain method before.

You should consider backporting the current version of kernel-package from unstable since it provides useful new features which aim to help you. To do that add in your /etc/apt/sources.list a unstable-source and then do apt-get source -b kernel-package. I can also provide you with a backported package if you want me to!
