    Unhappy Issue compiling custom kernel


    I recently screwed up my FreeBSD server by deleting the /etc/defaults/ directory and now I am trying to recompile my Ubuntu kernel (on my laptop) with UFS write support so that I can retransfer the /etc/defaults/ directory files back onto my FreeBSD box via a USB flash drive. To recompile my kernel with this support turned on I've been following but have run into an issue.

    After I tell it to compile with make-kpkg it rolls along for a while until it hits the following error -
    make[3]: *** No rule to make target `firmware/bnx2x/bnx2x-e1-', needed by `__fw_modbuild'. Stop.
    I found one thread documenting this issue at but since I didn't pull the source from git, I can't simply do the git update that they suggest.

    Definitely would appreciate anyone who could point me in the right direction on this as right now my home file/media server is completely out of commission.

    Thanks in advance!

    Where did you get the source from ?

    I would just

    sudo apt-get source ......
    Then configure and compile from there.

    That's what i am currently doing.

    Kind regards

    just to piggyback on this thread, i usually follow the instructions here:

    I usually have to recompile once in a while to support a specific sound card.
