Although all the source is available it's not immediately obvious how to
All these commands should work on a Debian Etch or Lenny system.
Attempting to do this on a Sarge, Squeeze or Sid system will fail.
For the user level packages do:
1. apt-get source _package_
2. apt-get build-dep _package_
3. cd _package_
4. make any changes you want.
5. dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
For the kernel it's harder:
1. Download the linux-source package you want,
linux-source-2.6.12-ssi or linux-source-2.6.14-ssi
2. make sure you have gcc-3.4 or gcc-3.3 installed (apt-get install
3. make sure you have fakeroot, kernel-package and gawk installed.
4. Set up some environment variables:
5. get the kernel config. If you're already running an OpenSSI
kernel you'll find it in /boot/config-2.6.14-ssi-686-smp or
/boot/config-2.6.12-ssi-686-smp. Alternatively extract it from
the linux-image .deb:
1. dpkg-deb -x linux-image-2.6.14-ssi-686-smp_1.9.6-3_i386.deb
2. cp _dir_/boot/config-2.6.14-ssi-686-smp .config
6. Make whatever changes you need in the config
7. make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd kernel_image
8. have an appropriate amount of fun.
(If you want to re-build the kernel you may run into an irritating
make-kpkg bug - it seems to think that Documentation/lguest needs
cleaning up even though it doesn't exist. Just make a
"Documentation/lguest/Makefile" that contains just one line: "clean:").
