Hi Gene,

I recently stumbled into deb-pkg, and it's awesome building up the
source and standard debian packages all in one command, but it takes
the same arguments as a standard make. For rpi4 this is arm64 not
armhf so you probably want something like below to configure for
arm64. If you are doing this on the rpi4 you don't need the
CROSS_COMPILE= option.[1][2]
make -j4 ARCH=arm64 CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-elf- defconfig
Or if the kernel you're already running has a /proc/config.gz you can
use that directly (zcat /proc/config.gz > .config).
Then you can use the main make.
make -j4 ARCH=arm64 CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-elf- deb-pkg
Keep in mind that even with the debian package this may not be enough
to install the kernel for u-boot correctly, You'll have to see if all
the scripts in /etc/kernel/postinst.d/ are doing everything that is
needed, but it should give you at least a /boot/vmlinuz... When I use
this I have to extract the compressed Image to where u-boot grabs the

Hope this helps.


[1] The -j4 says to use up to 4 jobs which will speed up the compile
with a 4-core processor
[2] aarch64-elf- is you're cross-compiler prefix if you are
cross-compiling. If you don't have this, read up on cross-compilers
and check out Linaro (
