    custom kernel with make-kpkg

    I had an idea that fb1280x1024 does not make much sense without the SUN12x22 compiled-in framebuffer font. They are beautiful... But... that support is not in the linux-2.4.21-xfs kernel. So... I set out to get it there. And... ran into trouble...

    1. I chrooted to the knoppix source.
    2. untarred the vanilla 2.4.21 kernel to /usr/src
    3. copied .config from the -xfs dir and make menuconfig and added the font.
    4. added the cmdline patch to setup.c
    5. ran make-kpkg --revision 1 kernel_image and waited 1 hour.
    6. dpkg -i /usr/src/kernel-image-2.4.21_1_i386.deb

    and got an error: no fstab. That's right, there isn't.

    Now it turns out: make-kpkg put everything in place, it just completed with an error. /boot has another system.map, config and vmlinuz (last one +23754 bigger than the orig.) The only change I made to the orig config is adding the framebuffer font.

    Now the documents are not very clear on what is next: normall I run lilo. Now @System.map and @vmlinuz still point to the old ones.

    Questions:

    1. More people than me must have run into this eror with installing a new kernel_image?
    2. copy the new vmlinuz over to the boot.img is that next?
    3. Surely the @System.map and @vmlinuz must be updated?
    4. How does he know which modules to get? There are now 2 dirs: 2.4.21 and 2.4.21-xfs

    Thanks!

    Hugo.

    Something I did not explicitly specify: I am trying to do this booting from the CD, WITHOUT a HD install of Knoppix, having copied the CD to a HD partition only. I guess I could boot from another Debian system and chroot to the Knoppix source from there, but questions 2,3 and 4 still remain...

    I got the same problem. Then I copy the fstab on the 'real' root to the 'source/KNOPPIX/etc' and re-run the dpkg -i. Another error message, "Could not find where the current root file system is mounted" Any suggestion?
