Re: upgrading the kernel in debian etch from 2.6.18 to 2.6.29

make-kpkg -rfakeroot --initrd --revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image
sudo dpkg -i ../linux-image-2.6.29custom1.0_....deb

Maybe that should sort things out. Let me know if you face further problems.

Sorry - i tried to run that command but it gave an error - something that rfakeroot is not a command..so i had to look at the man pages and came up with:

make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd --revision=custom.1.1 kernel_image

that is the exact command.

and then did:
  sudo dpkg -i ../linux-image-2.6.29custom1.0_....deb

But i still got the error about can finding vg_maingroup which i believe is my main filesystem.

I should tell you that i have a mirrored boot drive and then i have a raid5 setup where the rest of the operating system is on.

I did go into the /boot directory and deleted the previous files:
config-2.6.29  initrd.img-2.6.29  System.map-2.6.29  vmlinuz-2.6.29

and then ran:
make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd --revision=custom.1.1 kernel_image
dpkg -i ../linux-image-2.6.29custom1.0_....deb

as is.

Is there a way to differeniate between the different kernels i am building - but using the same version??
