You'd probably be better off compiling a new kernel rather than patching it. I'm not familiar with Mandrake 9, so I don't know what kernel it uses. Go to here to download the latest kernel sources. And then you can follow the instructions here .


If you insist on patching it, there are instructions in the second link on how to do it. I think you'd be better off learning how to compile a new kernel though. It's really not that difficult. Good Luck.

for a gzipped kernel patch,
assuming your kernel source is in /usr/src/linux

gzip -cd nameofpatch | patch -d /usr/src/linux -p1

How would ne go about finding out where the kernal is installed at?
whansrds has given me something to try, but in Mandy under the /usr/scr was emapty I created a directory to store my patch into.
I am running Mandy 9 and would like to get this upgraded today if possible.
I tried the other directions and nothing happen so I would assume I did not have the source to replace kernel or right location to do this in.
