Applying a debian patch to a "pure" kernel
Hi, sorry about posting a second kernel question in a few days. I am trying to apply a debian patch to one of the pure kernels from kernel.org. Specifically the 2.6.13 kernel, i have downloaded the kernel-patch-debian-2.6.13 package under the impression that although it was not the kernel source in the main debian distribution, the package would attempt to patch the kernel anyway. So i used make-kpkg with --added-patches debian and i recieved the message:
No version.Debian file, assuming pristine Linux
Can't patch to nonexistant revision (wait until 2006)
Did a bit of looking around and found that older patches used to have a go anyway and do the best they could. I was hoping someone here know how to force this behaviour in the newer patches or knows of an alternative way to make this happen.
Thanks for your time.
