RE: [Xen-devel] debian build okay but no initrd

debian with an initrd or are you just assuming I haven't specified the

I probably should have supplied this in the first instance... here's the
commands I'm using to build the kernel:

export INITRD_OK=1
make-kpkg --initrd --arch xen --append_to_version -xen0 kernel_image

I've made an initrd myself with mkinitrd and that's fine, I just thought
someone might like to know that it doesn't seem to go by default.
