I use to compile my custom kernel (for my hw) which I build with make-kpkg.
I also have to install nvidia-kernel-dkms (the unstable 280.13-1) and the latest virtualbox-4.1 4.1.2.
All was working fine until yesterday when I build the latest linux kernel 3.0.3 for mu debian testing 64bits installation
and install image and headers pkg and I got the same message:
Error! Could not locate dkms.conf file.
File: does not exist.
For what is weird, today I do the same exercise on my debian 32bit installation without any issue but only with
nvidia-kernel-dkms (the unstable 280.13-1) and without any virtualbox?
I 'locate' some dkms.conf on my 32bit install i find some interesting: "/usr/src/nvidia-280.13/dkms.conf" and
"/var/lib/dpkg/info/dkms.conffiles" and are the same as on my 64bit installation.
To recover usage of my 64bit GUI and vbox, I re-install the stable 'dkms_18.104.22.168-5_all.deb' but have to 'dpkg-reconfigure
nvidia-kernel-dkms' and I still have to find why vbox module failed to compile with linux-3.0.3 but that's another story.
