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
Kindly tel me the steps to follow before and after applying patches in LINUX
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
