Subject:Newbie: howto get mm tree up to date using quilt
From:Charles 'Mack' Rhinelander (
Date:Jun 25, 2009 9:59:28 pm

I'm running 2.6.28-rc2-mm1, the latest mm tree. I'd like to patch it so it's up to date, and try using the daily snapshots.

Can somebody please tell me the steps to do this? I've diligently read "The Kernel Tester's Guide" and done many google searches, and I've got quilt, but I can't tell how these instructions apply to the contents of /pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.28-rc2/2.6.28-rc2-mm1 For example, there's no "series" file, it's called "patch-series"

Am I supposed to change the name?  And what all are "broken-out," "hot-fixes," "patch-list....?"
