what I'm doing wrong!

I'm following the wiki for compiling a kernel http://www.ubuntulinux.org/wiki/KernelCompileHowto .

I get to this bit and theres no deb package! :

Install

The new kernel package is located one directory up, in /usr/src.

# cd ..
# dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.8.1_custom.1.0_i386.deb


I've followed the guide perfectly. Any ideas? BTW if it helps im running an AMD 65 3000+ .

THanks ever so much in advance,
Matt

And you've run dpkg-kpkg [...] kernel_image?

I ran make-kpkg and got a command not found. I'm in root. I tried

make -kpkg

and that seemed to work.. but seems not.

dpkg with the space or not both say command not found / option not found.

Sorry, was a typo. I meant make-kpkg :-) It is in the "kernel-package" :-)

make-kpkg is part of the kernel-package

solution:
apt-get install kernel-package
