(referring to the With makepkg and pacman (Recommended) Section) the kernel26.install script does not complete successfully. I just tried this and it installs the package, but says :

>>> Updating module dependencies. Please wait ... error: command failed to execute correctly

and lastly, i think in the kernel26.install file, the KERNEL_VERSION variable has to be whatever you set to name your kernel as in your .config file, as well as the current version. So...the script on the wiki says its 2.6.28, which is out dated, and my kernel ended up being named (as i modified the kernel version string thing in .config from "-ARCH" to "-ARCH_MARK_GRANDI"

Also, when i tried to install the kernel-my package after it compiled, it complained that a lot of files from /lib/firmware/ already existed on the filesystem. I had to install the package with the -f (force) option to get it to install.

I am not familiar with bash scripting or whatever to make the appropriate changes to the kernel26.install script, or whats the best option about the lib/firmware conflicts =/
