How are these patches combined to a single .patch file ? -ready for build process


Hello,
How are these four patches combined to a single .patch file ?

could someone combine them and list the entire patch for me as I am unsure how to construct the patch out of four related ones.

Thanks
--Glenn

The patch file is applied via a spec file:
example:
https://build.opensuse.org/package/v....spec?expand=1

A build log shows:
https://build.opensuse.org/public/bu.../reiserfs/_log

package:
https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...stems/reiserfs

Why combine them? Just apply them all in order. The spec file example you gave already applies two different patches, follow that example.

When I want to combine patches, my process is:

1. apply them all

2. generate a new patch
