Hi all

I am trying to install new custom kernel in my ubundu. I am able to
see "vmlinuz-2.6.x.x-custom-velan"
and in my /boot after
#make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-custom_velan kernel_image

i don;t see initrd for this new custom kernel in /boot and also no entry is
created in /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
I also don't see any new file "menu.lst" in /boot/grub directory.

I am using generic kernel as below.

root at ubuntu:/usr/src/linux# uname -a
Linux ubuntu 2.6.32-24-generic #39-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jul 28 05:14:15 UTC 2010
x86_64 GNU/Linux

Can you throw some light on this.

S. Sengottuvelan.
