Default Bug#603066: linux-headers-2.6.39-rc5-amd64 depends on linux-kbuild-2.6.39

Hello.

Packages linux-headers-2.6.39-* in experimental are useless, since they
depend on linux-kbuild-2.6.39.

I do not use module-assistant, but I need kernel headers to build
third-party modules. If the only supported way to do it is to download
linux-source-2.6.39, then, possibly, linux-headers-* should not be
uploaded to experimental at all?

Thank you for your work in Debian!

I wonder what those could be? :-)

I suppose we could disable them when packaging release candidates.

However it is usually easy to build the linux-kbuild package, per
<http://wiki.debian.org/HowToRebuildAnOfficialDebianKernelPackage#How_to_b uild_linux-kbuild-2.6_yourself>.

Ben,



I wouldn't remove linux-headers from experimental, I would just
provide some clear instructions to make just linux-kbuild for a RC,
rather than recompile the whole kernel from source. Which is
precisely what, alas, I did on my first attempt. Without precompiled
headers, VMware and Vbox users, among others, will be back to the
drawing board (or to Google).



The usual link we are always referred to is confusing to kernel
noobs, and the script doesn't seem to play nice with RC kernels
anyway:



http://wiki.debian.org/HowToRebuildAnOfficialDebianKernelPackage#Thestory oflinux-kbuild-2.6



There's a suggestion to modify the script (Bug#624297:
build-linux-kbuild.sh: add support for -rcX kernels (needs version
mangling). I had to reverse-engineer it to understand why
I was doing what I had to do.
