Applying Patches To The Linux Kernel------------------------------------Original by: Jesper Juhl, August 2005Last update: 2006-01-05The 2.6.x.y kernels---Kernels with 4-digit versions are -stable kernels.They contain small(ish) critical fixes for securityproblems or significant regressions discovered in agiven 2.6.x kernel.This is the recommended branch for users who want themost recent stable kernel and are not interested inhelping test development/experimental versions.If no 2.6.x.y kernel is available, then the highestnumbered 2.6.x kernel is the current stable kernel.note: the -stable team usually do make incrementalpatches available as well as patches against thelatest mainline release, but I only cover the non-incremental ones below. The incremental ones can befound atftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/incr/These patches are not incremental, meaning that forexample the patch does not apply on top ofthe kernel source, but rather on top of thebase 2.6.12 kernel source .So, in order to apply the patch to yourexisting kernel source you have to first backout the patch (so you are left with a base2.6.12 kernel source) and then apply the new's a small example:$ cd ~/linux- # change intothe kernel source dir$ patch -p1-R< ../patch- #revert the patch (you will go back to 2.6.12)
