Unfortunately it doesn't work.
I have tried with the linux kernel so I commented out download.sh lines
in this way:
#maybe_fork "download || dienow"
Left sources/patches untouched.
Cloned linux git tree into packages/cache/linux
./build.sh $ARCH results in:
make: Leaving directory
=== ccwrap (i686-virtio simple-cross-compiler)
=== linux-headers (i686-virtio simple-cross-compiler)
=== linux (i686-virtio simple-cross-compiler)
No tarball for linux
Exiting due to errors (i686-virtio simple-cross-compiler linux)
Do you have any suggestions?
