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

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

These are in different sections for a good reason!

No doubt. However, I want to rebuild the Debian stock kernel with the one minor alteration to the config I've already mentioned, and produce a binary linux-image package with a different name. How do I do this?

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.

It defines certain parameters for the Debian packaging.  The ABI number
is set on the second line of the file.

Ok. In that case, I don't see how this is relevant to what I'm trying to do.
