squashfs on 2.6.30

Hi All,

Need some help with the following situation.

Aim to use Remastersys to create a bootable ISO of my existing debian installation.

Other related info:
Upgraded kernel to 2.6.30 using apt-get dist-upgrade
However, after upgrade, there is not squashfs-module, which is required for remastersys.
I tried to include squashfs using the following methodology:
cd squashfs-4.0
However, I am getting the following error:

dpkg-deb: building package `squashfs-tools' in `../squashfs-tools_4.0-3_i386.deb'.
 dpkg-genchanges  >../squashfs_4.0-3_i386.changes
dpkg-genchanges: not including original source code in upload
dpkg-buildpackage: binary and diff upload (original source NOT included)
Now running lintian...
warning: lintian's authors do not recommend running it with root privileges!
Finished running lintian.
Now signing changes and any dsc files...
 signfile squashfs_4.0-3.dsc Daniel Baumann <>
gpg: skipped "Daniel Baumann <>": secret key not available
gpg: /tmp/debsign.1mByvD9a/squashfs_4.0-3.dsc: clearsign failed: secret key not available
debsign: gpg error occurred!  Aborting....
debuild: fatal error at line 1245:
running debsign failed
How can I proceed further?

from what little i know/understand of the whole voodoo squashfs is from kernel 30 upwards build directly into the kernel.

i didnt need to to anything to make use of remastersys or live-helper to make use of it (with a 30-kernel).
