Question How to patch and build rpm of a kernel module (btusb.ko)


Hi..

I have generated two patches for the kernel btusb driver, to make it work with my bluetooth device. Now I want to generate an rpm named btusb_<version_info>.rpm, which upon installing will upgrade the older / already existing btusb module. my kernel version is 2.6.34.7. Please help me!!

Thanks in advance

You could google "HOWTO build rpm".

I usually use the Icinga docs for building an RPM as they aren't super verbose.
