Subjecthow to avoid that install.sh goes mad, if I am not root?
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

Hi folks,

I am trying to build my own custom Debian kernel package. Problem:
If the kernel is supposed to be installed in a temporary package
build directory, then it dies with

:
:
make[1]: Entering directory `/var/tmp/build_kernel/raw-kernel-2.6.37/linux-2.6.37'
sh /var/tmp/build_kernel/raw-kernel-2.6.37/linux-2.6.37/arch/x86/boot/install.sh 2.6.37 arch/x86/boot/bzImage \

make[1]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/build_kernel/raw-kernel-2.6.37/linux-2.6.37'


AFAICS this happens because the arch/x86/boot/install.sh script calls
/sbin/installkernel, which in turn runs all the scripts delivered
by various other packages. This is fine for a regular kernel install
as well as for an installation of the final kernel package, but for
a non-root install in a package build directory /sbin/installkernel
and all the run-parts scripts should not be run. installkernel doesn't
even know the redefined install directory.

Would it be possible to avoid that /sbin/installkernel is run by
install,sh, e.g. if the install directory has been redefined, or if
UID != 0?


Any helpful comment would be highly appreciated
