From what I understand, I can easily upgrade my kernel by applying patches to it, opposed to recompiling the kernel every time. I'm trying to go from kernel 3.2.51 to 3.2.54 by applying all the patches in between.
I'm trying to patch my 3.2.51 kernel (I downloaded it from www.kernel.org and compiled it myself) to 3.2.52.
With kernel 3.4.3 acpi video doesnt exist.This problem is fixed by this bug ;https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=43168Please add this patch to chakra kernel or update kernel to 3.4.5 because kernel is come with this patch. İ dont change my laptop brightness, thanks.
I've recently applied a one-line patch to drivers/bluetooth/btusb.c in order to enable compatibility with my Bluetooth device. However, whenever I get a kernel upgrade, the patch will be lost until someone backports it (which isn't likely). Is there a way for me to run a script and patch each new kernel upgrade automatically?
Details on how to apply the patch can be found here on Ask Ubuntu.
For each Linux kernel version, there is a patch file available for download. For instance, linux-3.12.22 has a corresponding patch-3.12.22.
What is the purpose of that patch? To always patch the corresponding kernel before compiling it, or to bring a former kernel version up-to-date with the kernel that the patch matches (3.12.22, in this case)?
