Either one works, they're both in the rules file for the same rule.

Modules like pcmcia, alsa, etc.

Haven't done this in a while? ;)

The last kernel image deb i made ended up being named
kernel-image-2.2.14_2.2.14-anomie.1_i386.deb

(i used "make-kpkg --rev 2.2.14-anomie.1 kernel-image" to create it)

Hmmm... then there are a LOT of packages that have non-permitted names.
Do a "dlocate -l -" or "dpkg -l \*-\*" sometime.

Actually, i think underscores aren't allowed in package names, because
the naming convention uses an underscore character to separate the
package name from the version.
