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 http://ghantoos.org/2009/04/04/mount...e-under-linux/ 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 http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2115317&page=2 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!
