I can't manage to work this out. Here is what I did please, what did I do wrong:
[my-tree] $ git checkout v2.6.35-rc2
[my-tree] $ touch localversion-my_tree
[my-tree] $ git add localversion-my_tree; git commit; # ...
[my-tree] $ make oldconfig
[my-tree] $ make

At my make install I still get DEPMOD 2.6.35-rc2+

What else to do?

Thanks
Boaz
