Kernel Build Methodology - Debian

Hi all, I've read through chapter 7 in the Debian Reference and man make-kpkg, but I'm not sure I'm completely clear on the "Debian standard method" to build the kernel. I built my first custom kernel the way it's described, no problem. I used --append_to_version -486 --revision=rev.01 Now, I wanted to do some minor changes to this kernel and replace it. I thought it would be appropriate to just increment the revision. So I did --append_to_version -486 --revision=rev.02 I've also built alsa-modules, so that got rebuilt as well. Now I tried to dpkg -r both the old kernel and alsa-modules ...

    Default Kernel Build Methodology


    Hi all,

    I've read through chapter 7 in the Debian Reference and man make-kpkg,
    but I'm not sure I'm completely clear on the "Debian standard method"
    to build the kernel. I built my first custom kernel the way it's
    described, no problem. I used

    --append_to_version -486 --revision=rev.01

    Now, I wanted to do some minor changes to this kernel and replace
    it. I thought it would be appropriate to just increment the
    revision. So I did

    --append_to_version -486 --revision=rev.02

    I've also built alsa-modules, so that got rebuilt as well. Now I tried
    to dpkg -r both the old kernel and alsa-modules package, but
    alsa-modules would not be removed while running Gnome, so I logeed out
    and logged in to a failsafe xterm, removed kernel and alsa packages,
    installed to new packages and reran LILO.

    This worked, but I'm wondering if this is the intended method, or if
    there is a cleaner way?

    A better idea IMO is to use a different --append-to-version value.
