I've been successfully building a set of Linux kernels on 16.04 base for some time now. When I build the 4.14 kernel to make deb packages with:

make -j24 KDEB_PKGVERSION=1.custom deb-pkg

which has always produced the following 5 deb packages:

  • linux-headers
  • linux-image
  • linux-image-4.x-dbg
  • linux-libc-dev
  • linux-firmware

I now only get these 4 deb packages:

  • linux-headers
  • linux-image
  • linux-image-4.x-dbg
  • linux-libc-dev

From 4.14 the linux-firmware package is no longer created. In 4.13 and prior, there was no issue.

Has there been any change in the way kernel packages are created in Ubuntu or is this a new Linux implementation?

Thank you.

I had the same problem and could not solve it, but the main kernel image works as expected, so it is not an issue for me at the moment.

I thinks it is related to this change:

kbuild: deb-pkg: remove firmware package support
