Building a module within a kernel
 
I recently received a patch from redhat to fix a bug in their code. The patch modified the following file.

.....drivers/net/ppp_async.c

Now I don't know what to do next. I need to rebuild the module (I assume), but I don't know what module it is and how to do it. I tried reading the documentation\modules.txt file for info but it was way over my head. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Brian

depending on what the patchfile looks like
you probably
cd /usr/src/linux/drivers/net
patch -p1 < path/to/your/patch
make
cp ppp_async.o /lib/modules/<kernel-versionmumble>/kernel/drivers/net/.




Cheers,
Tink
