I see that the new make-kpkg creates a linux-image which now goes along with
the debian names that moved from kernel-image to linux-image. Cool.

One thing is that I do a lot, is to test linux-2.6-git, and making different
kernel names for the kernels is really a pain, even I would have to edit grub
or have a zillion of grub entries.

What I do is I build make-kpkg --revision=PC.v1.bla kernel_image. If it goes
along with the 2.6.15-rc5 and I have created several images for that version,
then i don't really bother with grub, it is just overwritten, which is what I
really *want*. So, the new windows tell me that if I'm sure to install the
same version again and bla bla, I say I want to but then, did it work or not?

debian:~# dpkg -i linux-image-2.6.15-rc5_T42.v2.5_i386.deb
