Default Bug#519040: linux-headers-2.6.28-1-686: depends on linux-kbuild but not available

Package: linux-headers-2.6.28-1-686
Severity: normal

Depends on linux-kbuild-2.6.28 which is still not available a week after
the 2.6.28 kernel images. As a result the new kernel remains unusable
for me as it is not possible (easy ?) to rebuild kernel modules for it.
I realise it is just a matter of time, but when? Or am I missing
something else obvious? Thnak you.

-- System Information:
Debian Release: squeeze/sid
APT prefers unstable
APT policy: (500, 'unstable'), (1, 'experimental')
Architecture: i386 (i686)

Kernel: Linux 2.6.26-1-686 (SMP w/2 CPU cores)
Locale: LANG=en_GB.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_GB.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8)
Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/bash

Versions of packages linux-headers-2.6.28-1-686 depends on:
ii gcc-4.3 4.3.3-5 The GNU C compiler
ii linux-headers-2.6.28-1-common 2.6.28-1 Common header files for Linux 2.6.
pn linux-kbuild-2.6.28 <none> (no description available)

linux-headers-2.6.28-1-686 recommends no packages.

linux-headers-2.6.28-1-686 suggests no packages.

Default Bug#519040: linux-headers-2.6.28-1-686: depends on linux-kbuild but not available

You can try this way.

(from http://wiki.debian.org/HowToRebuildAnOfficialDebianKernelPackage?highligh t=(kbuild)
)

The story of linux-kbuild-2.6

The linux-headers-* packages created with the above method depend on
linux-kbuild-*, which is a not built from the linux-2.6 source
package, but from linux-kbuild-2.6.

Often, when a new kernel comes around, linux-kbuild-2.6.xx isn't yet
available in the archive, so you either have to build it yourself, or
wait.

How to build linux-kbuild-2.6 yourself

Fetch the sources from SVN:

svn co svn://svn.debian.org/kernel/dists/trunk/linux-kbuild-2.6

Then, fetch the vanilla kernel tarball (important: the 2.6.x version,
no 2.6.x.y version):

wget http://ftp.de.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/linux-2.6.27.tar.bz2

Now, you can prepare the package:

cd linux-kbuild-2.6
./debian/bin/genorig.py ../linux-2.6.27.tar.bz2
cd ..
tar xzf orig/linux-kbuild-2.6_2.6.27.orig.tar.gz
cd linux-kbuild-2.6-2.6.27/
cp -a ../linux-kbuild-2.6/* ./
./debian/bin/gencontrol.py
dch -i

Now adjust the version, and add a comment like "New upstream version"
or something, and build the package itself, after you installed
eventually missing build-dependencies:

make -f debian/rules clean
dpkg-checkbuilddeps
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc

and you are done.

End of quote.

If you try it, can you please drop a line to this bug?
I would need the same stuff and haven't tryed yet (not enough time)

Regards, me.

SORRY, but what do you mean by :
"Now adjust the version, and add a comment ..."

Imagine today I want to generate and build package linux-kbuild-2.6.28 ;
then, what shall I do to reach this goal, since the source I've
downloaded from svn are linux-kbuild-2.6.29~rc5 - related ?



make -f debian/rules clean
dpkg-checkbuilddeps
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc

and you are done.
