For some reason the kernel maintainer had to use an "epoch" in the
kernel-image version. You'll need to use your own and make it greater

mistake in numbering the first time around so you don't see epoch
numbers much greater than 1 or 2 so I generally use 5. Here's what I

make-kpkg --revision 5:homePC.1 --bzimage kernel_image
