Kernel Patching

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I'm still working on the folding CD project. I am hoping that patching the 2.6.33 kernel may fix some of the issues I am having. Ok so the patches dir in the project contains a bunch of .patch files. The Makefile which applies said patches also refers to them as such. kernel.org, distributes patches as .bz2 etc. My question is: What decompression method to I need to yield the needed .patch file? Thanks! (HowTos)
