Kernel Build Methodology
I've read through chapter 7 in the Debian Reference and man make-kpkg,
but I'm not sure I'm completely clear on the "Debian standard method"
to build the kernel. I built my first custom kernel the way it's
described, no problem. I used
--append_to_version -486 --revision=rev.01
Now, I wanted to do some minor changes to this kernel and replace
it. I thought it would be appropriate to just increment the
revision. So I did
--append_to_version -486 --revision=rev.02
I've also built alsa-modules, so that got rebuilt as well. Now I tried
to dpkg -r both the old kernel and alsa-modules package, but
alsa-modules would not be removed while running Gnome, so I logeed out
and logged in to a failsafe xterm, removed kernel and alsa packages,
installed to new packages and reran LILO.
This worked, but I'm wondering if this is the intended method, or if
there is a cleaner way?
