[Xen-users] make-kpkg (Debian based tool) does not build xen patched kernel‏

Hello list,

I cannot get make-kpkg to build a Xenlinux type kernel into a Debian kernel binary on my Debian Squeeze x86_64 system.

I am using GNU/Linux kernel sources tree ( with Xen patches for this custom kernel. I am trying to use the make-kpkg command to build a working linux-image- package for my system.

The sources are vanilla (available from kernel.org) with patches available from: http://gentoo-xen-kernel.googlecode.com/files/xen-patches-2.6.34-4.tar.bz2

These sources compile a Xenlinux kernel and not a pv_ops one so the bug report for XEN and the kernel-package is not applicable (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=574957)

It seems that when the kernel_image target is used, a System.map- can not be generated, and therefore a FATAL error causes the make-kpkg process to fail!

A System.map- can be generated when the kernel is built and packaged into a Debian binary with make deb-pkg.

Can anyone else reproduce this problem?
