Bug#690564: linux-kbuild-3.5: Builds modules with Exec format error
Package: linux-kbuild-3.5
Version: 3.5-1~experimental.1
Severity: important

I tried to use linux-kbuild-3.5 to build a driver for a Realtek card
driver but the driver won't load due to an "Exec format error". I guess
this is because kbuild is for 3.5 but the kernel version in experimental
is called 3.5-trunk. I tried to use the "mini howto" from
<> but I
can't find any way to make it work with the "trunk" suffix.
