Steps to build the kernel
Be sure the pcmcia-source is under /usr/src/modules.
Go ahead and configure your kernel and be sure that pcmcia support IS NOT compiled in as an option in the kernel.
To build the kernel and pcmcia-source, be sure you are under the
make-kpkg --revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image modules_image
The kernel_image option will build the kernel while the modules_image option will build all modules located under
After some chugging, go up one level to
You first want to install the kernel image so you would type
dpkg -i kernel-image-etc....
Now install the modules by typing
dpkg -i pcmcia-modules.etc...
There are a couple of assumptions that make-kpkg makes about your lilo.conf file. One is that you have not radically changed it. Make-kpgk will make make symbolics links from '/boot' where the actual kernel resides to 'vmlinuz' which is under '/'. In other words, under '/', you will see vmlinuz and vmlinuz.old which are symbolic links to the real kernel images under /boot/. Anyway if you have any questions ask me.
