Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected!


Hello,

I've just installed a new kernel on Lenny: 2.6.25.1 from kernel.org. Everything went well.

uname -r returns:

test:~# uname -r
2.6.25.1


I'm now trying to apply the first patch in the series: 2.6.25.2 and have downloaded that patch from kernel.org as well. But when I try to patch, I get:

test:/usr/src/linux# patch -p1 < patch-2.6.25.2
patching file Makefile
Hunk #1 FAILED at 1.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file Makefile.rej
patching file arch/alpha/kernel/osf_sys.c
Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected! Assume -R? [n]

At which point I cancel out of the process. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here. All help much appreciated.

Thanks,

ab

Thought. Is this happening because I'm applying the patch to the 2.6.25.1 kernel instead of having installed the base 2.6.25 base and patched 1-9 from there?

Thanks,

ab

Thanks for the reply and the link. Is this a kernel that is already patched up to #2? I'm actually doing this as a learning exercise. I wanted to try my hand at compiling and installing a new kernel, which I did. Now I want to tackle patching. I'm going to install the base 2.6.25 and try to patch 1-9 from there. Thanks again for your help.

Any veteran suggestions are very welcome. :-)

Nope, that's the incremental patch from 2.6.25.1 to 2.6.25.2 which I thought you were trying to accomplish.
The 2.6.25.2 patch you got an error with is indeed supposed to be applied to an unpatched 2.6.25 source.
