make-kpgp && git-bisect
I am preparing to build a larger number of kernels using the
git-bisect method. I would like to find a bug introduced somewhere
between 2.6.17 and 188.8.131.52.
I would like to package these kernels with make-kpkg so that I can
install and remove them easily.
I want to have a single package where different versions correspond to
different kernels, produced by git-bisect.
packagename-1 == v2.6.17
packagename-2 == v184.108.40.206
packagename-3 == somewhere in the middle
However I have problems using make-kpkg. It has some automatics inside
and enforces rules on debian packagenames/versions, which both are
unclear to me.
I am experimenting with stuff like:
MAKEFLAGS="CC=gcc-3.4 HOSTCC=gcc-3.4" make-kpkg --append-to-version 2.6.17 --revision 2.6-1.gitbisect -us -uc --initrd --rootcmd fakeroot kernel_image
But I failed now several times at the end of the process. Could
someone help me with the parameter --append-to-version XX --revision
2.6-1.gitbisect YY and the strings in debian/changecontrol ZZ?
Or should I address this differently?
