Re: Kernel patches

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]


In slitaz diff is a link to busybox. It's not provided by diff-utils
packages and doesn't support "-" as filename for stdin.
The patch create a tmp file from stdin, do diff and delete the file.
Please find attached lzma and diff patches for 2.6.28 kernel.
