Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kernel-package

dist: ubuntu edgy eft knot-2
kernel-source: 2.6.18-rc5 from kernel.org + ck patchset


I tried to build a kernel-image on edgy with make xconfig and "make-
kpkg". (around september 10th)

This error occured:
#make-kpkg kernel_image kernel_modules kernel_headers 
 make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-' 
 ====== making target stamp-kernel-image [new prereqs: linux-image- linux -image-]====== 
 echo done > stamp-kernel-image 
 ====== making target kernel_image [new prereqs: stamp-configure stamp-build-kern el stamp-kernel-image]====== 
 The UTS Release version in include/linux/version.h 
 does not match current version: 
 Please correct this.

(don't mind with the old kernel version, I got this error from a debian
forum, because I can't copy&paste my own error message. But it was
exactly the same.)

However, this error occurs at the end of make-kpkg, very frustrating ;)

Then I found out, that this bug is already registered at Debian:

I'm an advanced newbie (so to say) and maybe I did mess something up with the version string myself. But I tried it several times, to make sure the bug is in the package and not behind the keyboard ;)

I also installed build-essentials libqt3-mt-dev etc. to build this

Then I got an version auf "kernel-package" vom Debian unstable and installed it with dpkg -i.  Same error.
So don't know exactly, just want to report this.
