Re: Kernel patches

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]


The package linux-source ( provides 4 patchs:

1- linux-lzma-
   Add initramfs compressed with lzma support
   Without this patch, you must recompress rootfs.gz with gzip:
   $ lzma d rootfs.gz -so | gzip -9 > rootfs-gzipped.gz

2- linux-utf8-
   Disable utf8 charset by default.
   Could by applied on many (future) linux versions.
   Without this patch non ascii characters should not be well displayed in
   text mode only (doesn't affect X)

3- linux-diff-
   if you are using 'busybox diff' (by default with slitaz)

4- linux-rootdev.u
   Not really usefull. Set default root device.
