Hello Manoj,

Not verbatim, its gone now. It said something about a mismatch of
the part marked below in debian/changelog 

linux-source- (2.6-1.gitbisect) unstable; urgency=low
                          ( ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^)

versus 2.6.17, which was not part of cmd line parameters, but seemed
to be derived from the kernel itself (version.h).

This experience, was not done with the posted cmdline, but was the
result of one of my many trials in the 3 hours before posting.

I tried at least the following variants

  434   MAKEFLAGS="CC=gcc-3.4  HOSTCC=gcc-3.4" make-kpkg --revision 2.6-v2.6.17 -us -uc --initrd --rootcmd fakeroot  kernel-image
  436   MAKEFLAGS="CC=gcc-3.4  HOSTCC=gcc-3.4" make-kpkg --revision 2.6-v2.6.17 -us -uc --initrd --rootcmd fakeroot  kernel-image
  439   MAKEFLAGS="CC=gcc-3.4  HOSTCC=gcc-3.4" make-kpkg --revision 2.6-2.6.17-fjh -us -uc --initrd --rootcmd fakeroot  kernel-image
  440   MAKEFLAGS="CC=gcc-3.4  HOSTCC=gcc-3.4" make-kpkg --revision 2.6-1.v2.6.17 -us -uc --initrd --rootcmd fakeroot  kernel-image

I do not have debian/changecontrol in a SCM system, so I lost track what was in it. Sorry.

The cmdline from my previous email

MAKEFLAGS="CC=gcc-3.4 HOSTCC=gcc-3.4" make-kpkg --append-to-version 2.6.17 --revision 2.6-1.gitbisect -us -uc --initrd --rootcmd fakeroot kernel_image', 

works in fact. I discouvered this 20 minutes after sending out my
email. The only drawback is, that it created


which is a strange looking name.

dpkg -l gives:

ii  linux-image-                     2.6-1.gitbisect                              Linux kernel binary image for version

I noticed too, that the beginning of a line in debian/changecontrol
was modified by make-kpkg

linux-source- (2.6-1.gitbisect) unstable; urgency=low

and was something different in my editor. Is this as expected?

I think I can work with the current approach. But I still feel
slightly confused.
