    Unhappy Kernel Woes

    Trying to answering a kernel question the other day made me want to upgrade and see if I knew what I was on about these days - apparently I have no idea. Everythings changed! No make dep?!? make-kpkg!!?? I had to re-learn it all !!
    Im using Debian Sarge with a 2.4 kernel so I thourght I'd give it a go.

    Ok so heres what I did, some steps probably unnecessary but I tried it anyway.

    # apt-get install kernel-package libncurses5-dev fakeroot wget bzip2
    # cd /usr/src
    # wget
    # tar xjf linux-
    # mv linux- linux
    # cd linux
    # make clean
    # make menuconfig (picked what I needed)
    # make-kpkg clean
    # fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image

    All was loooking fine then BAM! Errors! Can anyone tell me what is going on or what to do next? The final few lines of output are below.

    Its better to regret something you have done than to regret something you havent done :P

    My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.

    The one serious conviction that a man should have is that nothing is to be taken too seriously.
    Where facts are few, experts are many.
