[SOLVED] Core64 do I need all patches in kernel repo?
« on: September 24, 2015, 04:03:36 AM »
Hi

I posted in Remasters as that is my intention but it could have been posted in TCB?

I am thinking of compiling a new kernel to try out on 64 bit and I notice this link
http://tinycorelinux.net/6.x/x86/release/src/kernel/316-patches/

It suggests all of those patches were used to patch kernel 3.16.6?

but peeking into
http://tinycorelinux.net/6.x/x86/release/src/kernel/316-patches/sd-warning.patch

we have
Quote
linux-3.16.3

while I am on
Code: [Select]
uname -a
Linux box 3.16.6-tinycore64 #777 SMP Thu Oct 16 10:21:00 UTC 2014 x86_64 GNU/Linux

any advice on which patches I can leave out or need to mod will be greatly appreciated.

cheers

All patches were used. The directory name inside a patch does not matter.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
