Re: Inclusion of kernel version in kernel package names: A followup
AAAAAAAUGH. Please, guys, have a look at the new packaging scripts,
either in the 1.3.95+ packages or in the standalone package being
distributed right now.
It allows both prepackaged and user custom packages to
co-exist. Really. (At the moment you may have problems removing the
old image package, but I'm working on that, right now you have to say
--force-remove-essential till I remove the essential flag.
Co-existance can, and has, been achieved, even for loadlin
users (as long as you do not install version X.X.XX on top of a
existing X.X.XX version).
With the new kernel-package package being released, you may
even create your own debianized kernels (that's what I do). Could we
give this thread a rest, please, unless you see a problem with the
new scripts (1.3.64 has the older scripts that have problems)?
"Standards committees are not the best ways to create a standard.
Standards meetings and standards themselves are horribly political
things. One thing that people forget is that many standards are made
by rather small groups of people. A few good people can really save
the day, and a few idiots can really make it miserable for years to
come." -- Dennis Ritchie, coinventor of Unix %%
