Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-source-2.6.15

I built a kernel-image package with the following setting (via make

"Local version - append to kernel release" = "-mark1"

The resulting package was called kernel-

When I tried to install the package, I got an error that


did not exist.

I checked, and the folder /lib/modules/ existed

There appears to be a problem in how the kernel version string is being
managed and there is a discrepency in how this is handled.

After removing the package, the modules folder suffixed with mark1 was
removed even though the removal process results in the message: "Cannot
delete version Not created by this utility."

** Affects: linux-source-2.6.15 (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed
