I downloaded the ubuntu kernel using "git" (I patched it with the
core2duo coretemp stuff), and I'm now trying to build this...
I followed the howtos, looked in google, in the kernel docs, but I'm
Whenever I try to compile this 2.6.20 kernel using the new "debian way"
(the debian/rules thing), I get the following error :
[lots of things]
====== making target build [new prereqs: stamp-build]======
sed: can't read Module.symvers: No such file or directory
make: Leaving directory `/root/ubuntu-2.6/debian/build/build-386'
Checking module listings...
Modules have gone missing:
[all modules to build listed here]
Will not continue!
make: *** [build] Erreur 1
..... Uh ? I read in the kernel docs that the Module.symvers file had to
be built using a whole kernel build, and I suceeded in buildin it using
the "old debian way" (make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd
--append-to-version=fred kernel-image kernel-headers).
Unfortunately, this old way failed at the end just before it built the
packages... anyway, I got this damn Module.symvers file. Now that I got
it, I had to clean the kernel sources tree (the debian/rules file was
not the original one - why ??) and retry the debian/rules stuff... to
see that it's still failing saying modules have gone missing....?????
Now, it doesn't complain about the file missing, but it says nothing
else than in the previous error message.
Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
