I try to build kernel from git source. Now n-th build try is

Perhaps you should post your actual output from the build failure?

I dont have it right now, I disabled wireless at all and started
The output to the console was make-kpkg ordinary message - saying that
sub build finished with error code 2 AFAIR, it stopped each time on
wireless drivers.

Zonk! It seems that the problem is not only with wireless, now it broke

make[1]: Opuszczenie katalogu `/usr/src/linus/linux-2.6-20100521-2044'
make: *** [debian/stamp/build/kernel] Błąd 2

Opuszczenie katalogu `/usr/src/linus/linux-2.6-20100521-2044' is
"leaving directory", Błąd is error.

That still doesn't show the actual error/problem message...

Because there was no other messages, maybe Debian make-kpkg mutes them
some way. I can try tommorrow the classic linux way and test it. I
attach botching config.

I git-pulled and have run build with make-kpkg --verbose, again failed.
This is the tail of the output:


I tried git8 from and the make-kpkg build fails on iwlwifi. I'll give up for today I think.
