I have been trying to create kernel packages for Ubuntu myself for a
couple of days without success.

I have been following the instructions available here:

The compilation process runs apparently without problems and the kernel
package is generated, but when it is installed, all the kernel modules
are pushed into the initrd image and later, that makes the boot fails
because of its huge size. I have been able to workaround this issue
setting MODULES=list in /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf. But I want
the generated packages to be as close as the standard ones from Ubuntu
as possible...

So, I would really apreciate if you could describe the procedure you
have used or if you just give me some pointers in the right direction
