Compiling a new kernel and dselect problems
I'm a new entry in the worderful Debian world.
Previously i'd used Red Hat 6.x ad Mandrake but i thought i' was time to
make a jump in the real Linux world and started using a potato release
Well, my problem arise when i want to build a custom kernel the Debian-way.
When i built it i found a .deb package ready to install. I dpkg -i the
My system warns me that there is a kernel image with the same name
installed yet (my version has a revision of my own) but i proceed.
All goes well but whe i try to install a new package using dselect, in
the Install session, dselect tells me he wants to upgrade my custom
kernel with the standard kernel having the same name kernel so i've to
interrupt the installation of my packages.
Can somebody tell me ho to solve this problem ? Can i build the custom
kernel with a different name (not only the revision name) ?
Thanks in advance
