Hi...

How exactly do you mean? You didn't provide enough detail with your request. What files do you want to patch? Are you just talking about updates for the OS and other software that's available from the vendor? Also, what distribution and version of Linux are you using?

Thanks!

Hi

thanks for ur reply, think the patches is for linux version or kernal upgrade... Now tell me the steps to follow as in MNC environment if you know or the normal steps to follow. ( for ex: need to stop the services one by one and inform the task to related team db2, java etc )

It's not so easy with little knowledge about Linux.

Read HOWTO's and Guides from TLDP.

Read LQ Tutorials.

Read a good book on Linux (Introductory, Intermediate) and it's system administration.

-- edit---
i missed the third post about the kernel

to patch the OLD!!! source code before you build it

use "patch" and "diff"
without any of the needed information
( you DO NOT GIVE ANY INFORMATION AT ALL in your post)

there is no way we can answer this

there is really nothing in that statment that can be answered

i only GUESSED!!! you are referring to patching source code

see " TB0ne" post below
there is a LOT more information that must be provided
patching the kernel is not to be taken lightly
you HAVE to do a LOT of work

You first need to start by reading the LQ Rules and the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature. Text-speak isn't a good thing, and unless you provide any useful details, there is NO WAY we can give you any sort of meaningful answer. Just saying "patches for Linux version or kernel upgrade" is meaningless. These things vary depending on what version/distro of Linux you're using, and what you're trying to do.

Also, telling people "Now tell me" isn't polite. Ask a specific question with relevant details and we can answer. Otherwise, contact your Linux administrators and ask them.
