    Deploying kernel driver patch

    am very new to linux drivers and kernel

    Recently i am facing IDE based issue in my system.to overcome the issues i saw a link : [tartarus.org] which i believe might solve the issue

    kernel version : (linux-source-2.6.32).

    Below are the steps which i performed:

    1. In my work machine applied the patch changes as mentioned in forum
    2. compiled the changes in work machine
    3. Now i need to deploy the compiled patch in work machine .how should that be done??

    below are failure steps which i tried so far :
    compiling of patch (work machine)
    make SUBDIRS=drivers/pci/ and make module SUBDIRS=drivers/pci/

    For deploying i tried the below stuff: (please correct the mistake which i am doing)

    i copied the "pci-stub.ko" from linux-source-2.6.32/drivers/pci to test machine's : "/lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/kernel/drivers/pci" location
    and then set quirks.ich_force_ahci=1 in /etc/grub/grub.conf

    and performed the reboot and still see the patch did not work

    Re: Deploying kernel driver patch

    Read the patch. It's "not guaranteed" to work, and by the tone of the comments, I get the impression that the author is pretty sure it's not going to.

    That said, the only thing I can think of to check is that you installed the new kernel on the work machine.
