  1. Bug#465512: linux-image-2.6.18-6-amd64: broken symlink /lib/modules/2.6.18-6-amd64/source

    Package: linux-image-2.6.18-6-amd64
    Version: 2.6.18.dfsg.1-18etch1
    Severity: minor


    When installing the kernel package I get a message:
    Hmm. The package shipped with a symbolic link /lib/modules/2.6.18-6-amd64/source
    However, I can not read the target: No such file or directory
    Therefore, I am deleting /lib/modules/2.6.18-6-amd64/source

    Examining the package with dpkg-deb -c shows:
    lrwxrwxrwx root/root 0 2008-02-10 10:17 ./lib/modules/2.6.18-6-amd64/source -> /home/blank/debian/kernel/release/linux-2.6/linux-2.6-2.6.18.dfsg.1/debian/build/build-amd64-none-amd64

    /home/blank doesn't exist on my system. This seems to be left over from the
    build proccess. I'm not sure if this link is used elsewhere, if so it
    might cause other problems.
    I recall having seen this message in previous upgrades so it likely
    affects other kernel packages.

    It is a left over from make-kpkg usage.
