As subject says I wonder if it's advisable to do?
Reading the info from build_NSA-220.tar.gz
- You can also upgrade between 2.6.xx releases by patching. Patches are
distributed in the traditional gzip and the newer bzip2 format. To
install by patching, get all the newer patch files, enter the
top level directory of the kernel source (linux-2.6.xx) and execute:
gzip -cd ../patch-2.6.xx.gz | patch -p1
bzip2 -dc ../patch-2.6.xx.bz2 | patch -p1
(repeat xx for all versions bigger than the version of your current
source tree, _in_order_) and you should be ok. You may want to remove
the backup files (xxx~ or xxx.orig), and make sure that there are no
failed patches (xxx# or xxx.rej). If there are, either you or me has
made a mistake.
The reason I would like to update is that I found some interesting stuff at Linux Kernel Configuration Archive (http://kernel.xc.net
) and while re-compiling to get the USB HUB issue sorted it would be nice to also add kernel support for USB Serialport (FTDI) that seems to be fully supported from 2.6.26, see link below... http://kernel.xc.net/search.cgi?string=ftdi&version=all&arch=arm
And if it's possible where do I find the above mentioned patches? I tried to look around at http://www.kernel.org
but all links seems dead...
