Thread: about kernel patch?

  1. about kernel patch?

    Hi,

    I download new kernel 2.4.33.3 and also downloaded patch-2.4.33.3

    #cat path-2.4.33.3
    the content of patch files is as follows...

    diff --git a/Makefile b/Makefile
    index fd6884d..635682e 100644
    --- a/Makefile
    +++ b/Makefile
    @@ -1,7 +1,7 @@
    VERSION = 2
    PATCHLEVEL = 4
    SUBLEVEL = 33
    -EXTRAVERSION =
    +EXTRAVERSION = .3

    in the kernel source ( /tmp/linux-2.4.33 ) , I runned following command...

    gzip -cd ./patch-2.4.33 | patch -p1

    And I met following error?

    patching file CREDITS
    Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected! Assume -R? [n]
    Apply anyway? [n]


    what was wrong?
    I just download fresh kernel and patch file... ( Why I met this eror?)

    And What does "Assume -R? [n]" mean?
    what should I answer in this case? "n" , or "y" , or -R ?


    Have a nice day.

    Ctrl+C

    The message means that the patch is already applied, and you are asked
    if you want to remove the already applied patch instead.

    The reason behind that is that patch-2.4.33.3 is not a patch FOR 2.4.33.3,
    but a patch to upgrade 2.4.33.2 to 2.4.33.3.

    Delete the patch!

    Yours,
    Laurenz Albe
