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.


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.

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