I'm trying to apply the rt-patch to the standard kernel from kernel.org. So far I have tried 3.14 and 3.10 from here: https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/ with the corresponding kernel version.

My problem is that when I come to patch the kernel, I get the following type of output that I do not understand:

|There's some hardware latency that takes 2 microseconds to run. | |Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt |Signed-off-by: Sebastian Andrzej Siewior |--- | drivers/misc/hwlat_detector.c | 32 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++------ | 1 file changed, 26 insertions(+), 6 deletions(-) | |--- a/drivers/misc/hwlat_detector.c |+++ b/drivers/misc/hwlat_detector.c -------------------------- File to patch:

This is from command:

bzcat ../patches-3.10.10-rt7.tar.bz2 | patch -p1 --dry-run

What is it asking me?


patches-3.10.10-rt7.tar.bz2 is a tar file containing a lot of patches as individual files. You can't just feed that to the patch command and have it do the right thing.

If you get the patch-3.10.10-rt7.patch.bz2 file it should work using the command you've shown.
