Hash: SHA512

Package: nvidia-kernel-source
Version: 195.36.24-1
Severity: grave
Tags: sid

Trying to build the deb for the new nvidia-kernel-source:
   [many compiler _warnings_ not relevant]
     LD [M]  /usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel/nvidia.o
     Building modules, stage 2.
     MODPOST 1 modules
   /bin/sh: scripts/mod/modpost: not found
   make[4]: *** [__modpost] Fehler 127
   make[3]: *** [modules] Fehler 2
   make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-'
   make[2]: *** [modules] Fehler 2
   make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel'
   make[1]: *** [build-stamp] Fehler 2
   make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel'
   Module /usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel failed.

And no, I do not want to switch to the ulcer dkms. I am very happy that
debian is not using this crap (like fedora do). However, that is my
opinion and not related to the bug.
