Could not patch kernel.....26 to 29?


First time I've patched anything. Tried to patch kernel 26 to change it to 29. Did it --don't-actually-do-anything. A lot of it worked but a great deal of it did not.

Just wondering if it's too big a jump from ....26 -> ....29? Do you have to do 26 -> 27 -> 28 -> or something? Thanks any help.

one by one

Ello : ) lugoteehalt,
ya you have to go one by one from 26 -> 27 -> 28 -> 29

If u have a kernel source, go through the README or applying-patches.txt in Documentation folder ..

Thanks. However gave up on patching and just used 2.6.29.1 kernel source and .config'rd it using Debian Lenny 5 configuration. It seems to work allright.
