Compilation of 2.6.26 Debian sources from lenny on squeeze fails with the
following below. The only change I made was to set
CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED_V2=n. See patch below. The command I used was

fakeroot make KDEB_PKGVERSION=custom.1.0  -f debian/rules.gen binary-arch_i386_none_686-bigmem

Am I missing something obvious? Please CC me on any reply. I'm not
subscribed. Thanks in advance.

KDEB_PKGVERSION has no effect.  You need to change the ABI version in

I'm just trying to change the name of the package (from the default of linux-image-2.6.26-2-686-bigmem to presumably something like linux-image-2.6.26.custom.1.0-2-686-bigmem) so that it does not replace my currently installed 2.6.26 version, and I can distinguish it from the stock Debian kernels. I was attempting to follow Section 4.5 in http://kernel-handbook.alioth.debian.org/ch-common-tasks.html.

It doesn't look like a good fit with the other instructions in 4.2.4, but I tried to mix them together.

I don't see how to alter debian/config/defines to do this. To be honest, I don't even know what this file is for.

and you'll need to run 'debian/rules debian/control-real' after that.
