Having some trouble compiling the kernel. I followed the (new) instructions
posted on the Debian page in the wiki. However, when I hit ./build , mkimage
just displays the command syntax and quits. I am compiling on Ubuntu 8.04.
mkimage was not available and based on the recommendation, I installed

Even as I speak, I am reading the jigit package description and something
tells me this is not what I want.

So which mkimage should I install for the ./build script ?
