Hello,

I tried to update my kernel to 2.6.16.1 yesterday. I have downloaded the kernel to /usr/src and untar'ed it and then finished the menuconfig. When I typed

Code:
/usr/src/linux.2.6.16.1#make-kpkg clean

I get the following error message:

Code:
make:*** No rule to make target `kpkg-clean'. Stop.

Meantime, when I type

Code:
/usr/src/linux.2.6.16.1# fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --revision=custom.1.0 kernel-image-2.6.16.1-custom_1.0.deb

I get the following error message:

Code:
Error: Unknown target kernel-image-2.6.16.1-custom_1.0.deb use --targets to display help on valid targets
I am following your tutorials from the following to update my kernel:
http://www.falkotimme.com/howtos/deb...pile/index.php
http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21

and also from official debian site:
http://www.debian.org/releases/sarge...h08s05.html.en

I did a fresh install of Debian Sarge on my Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 [didn't do dist-upgrade]. And yes, I have never compiled a kernel before.

Regards,
Chief
