I think you are referring to the values in the config/alpha.cfg file. I set
the following values there:
KERNELVERSION = 3.10-3-alpha-generic
KERNELMAJOR = 3.10
That is not the newest version, but it is the one that currently works on
alphas. The most current is 3.14-2. I tried specifying that and got to
essentially the same point.

This is a fresh di checkout. It is current as far as I can tell. Of course,
alpha has had installer built for it for quite a while.
Thanks for the suggestions,
