Which kernel (name of the package and version) are you running? I used
gcc-3.3 to build the kernel packages. The compiler used to build the
running kernel is listed in /proc/version btw.
Yes! Thats found the problem. Theres been some sort of apt pinning disaster and the packages have come from unstable :-(
(or maybe confusion over the backports being called kernel-image and the unstable ones being linux-image.)
It might have been some nasty interaction of the apt.conf default-version thing vs pinning levels.
I should have looked more carefully where stuff was being downloaded from - normally I do that, but this time it sneaked by :-(
Sorry to have troubled you - thanks for the work!
