Of course, getting back to the original question, it's still not clear why a kernel for a Debian distro is being compiled on an Ubuntu system. That sort of suggests a lack of faith in Debian on Rpi developers' part. One should always fully commit to the technology one is promoting.
That wasn't your original question. Your original question was
Why does RpiOS use Ubuntu's kernel?
It was answered very quickly, and your initial disbelief at the answer and subsequent posts indicate that you don't understand (or have chosen to understand only parts of) the following:
- What various kernel-related messages mean,
- The relationship and/or difference between Debian, Ubuntu, and Raspberry Pi OS,
- What "beta" means when talking about software, and
- The advantages and disadvantages of cross-compiling.
I don't believe that's an exhaustive list.
It sounds like you're genuinely interested in some of this stuff and that's great... but you really need to start asking your questions like questions instead of wording them like accusations and conspiracy theories. For example:
it's still not clear why a kernel for a Debian distro is being compiled on an Ubuntu system
That's fair. You may not understand the advantages of cross-compiling yet, but okay, that's fair - the kernel is being built on another machine. However:
That sort of suggests a lack of faith in Debian on Rpi developers' part. One should always fully commit to the technology one is promoting
This is pure conjecture on your part, and does nothing to further your understanding of the technology or getting forum members to engage with you in a helpful way.
The physicist Wolfgang Pauli is rumoured to have said something that I think fits here. I'm paraphrasing but hopefully you'll get the idea:
"You're not right... you're not even wrong."
