Worked in the tech field for over 15 years. Started out learning basic on an Apple IIe then on a TRS-80. Been interested in computer hardware and software my entire life. Consider myself lucky that my hobby as a kid/adult is what I get to do everyday earning a living.

First, please put down the chocolate-covered banana and step away from the European currency systems.

comment Why my bash prompt changed to be “root@bogon”
@user43312 - The Q is getting better. If we could get how the VM is setup networkwise then it should be in a more answerable state that will help you out. Can you SSH into the VM, does it have it's own IP from your DHCP router or is the IP from the VMware network?

@MartinBeseda - it was closed b/c, as the reason states, there are too many possible answers. That being said, when we close Q's doesn't mean we do not like them or think they're valuable, rather that they need to be better stated/defined so that the answers can be more concise.

Much of how it works is discussed here in the linuxfoundations guidance docs: How to Participate in the Linux Community

Lists of mailing lists are here: vger.kernel.org/vger-lists.html#linux-kernel. Also ironically this SO Q&A is helpful: How / Where to find Linux Kernel Bugs to Fix?

comment Git, Linux kernel and ticketing/bug-reporting
From what I've found in the past when I've researched this, there are no bug trackers/issue trackers. These are typically done by the distros, bugzilla being a big one for RH. The patches and their applications are how they pivot on tracking changes. This tool, PatchWork shows you this: linux-mips.org/wiki/Patchwork. You can see it live, in action here: patchwork.linux-mips.org/project/linux-mips/list. It's these types of tools + mailing lists.

This document on submitting patches, authored by Andi Kleen probably gives you the most insight you're going to get on the subject w/o asking Linus: halobates.de/on-submitting-kernel-patches.pdf
