Dear lazyweb, how can I customize ...

Dear layweb, I know that somebody from the kernel team (iirc) posted an article/mail about how to make a customized version of the Debian linux-image package, but I can't find it anymore.

For short, I want to produce a slightly modified linux-image-2.6.18-4-amd64 package. Which is the right source I want?

Is

apt-get source linux-image-2.6.18-4-amd64

what I want or is it

apt-get install linux-source-2.6.18
?

I am confused. Help would be appreciated.

Salut Eddy,

apt-get source îţi va aduce sursele pachetului linux-image-2.6.18-4-amd64 în directorul curent iar apt-get install linux-source-2.6.18 va aduce pachetul linux-source-2.6.18 în /usr/src.

Eu cred că ai vrea prima variantă. Ai putea să o combini cu un mic tutorial compus de mine. Poţi încerca să pasezi la make-kpgk şi parametrul --append-to-version -versiunea-ta pentru personalizare.

Perhaps it was the Debian Linux Kernel Handbook.
