Kernel Patching


I just found a description for a rather nasty problem that I was having with my current configuration in the changelog for "v2.4.22-bk52". First of all what is this patch? Secondly what do I do with it?

www.linuxhq.com is where I found the patch. I have been googling around and read the man page for 'patch' but I still am confused.

Ok I used the command: 'patch -p1 < patch-2.2.x' and I got the following message.

Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected! Assume -R? [n]

What does that mean?

the -R switch is in the man page it means that either you already applied the patch or according to man, old and new files are swapped (I had to look as I never saw this b4 )

What problem are you trying to fix with this patch?

A problem that I have been posting about on this message board for over 3 weeks. When my computer boots up and ide-scsi emulation tries to load for my cd-burner my system hangs. And in the changelog for the patch I found this:

"ChangeSet@1.1109.8.9, 2003-09-17 15:10:50-03:00, marcelo@logos.cnet
Fix ide-scsi initialization lockup (kudos to Alan)"

So I thought I would give it a shot considering the alternatives people have been offering me have not helped my problem.
