applying the patch
I am quite new to compiling kernels although I believe I have it figured out . My one problem is applying the patch. I downloaded it from where it was mentioned above and renamed it to add-coretemp-driver.patch (which was its original name). Then I put it in the same directory as my kernel source. But I am cunfused as to the command to do the actual patching. I tried:
patch -p1 add-coretemp-driver.patch
but all I get is a blinking curser under it and the terminal just sits there.
Any help for a newbie would be greatly appretiated.
