I am trying to compile a vanilla 2.6.34.x kernel that will be patched with
reiser4-for-2.6.34.patch.bz2 and use obs to to compile it to generate a
.rpm of the kernel which has reiser4 enabled and I need some assistance.
Here is some history so which got me this point 
The patches in the kernel-source package are packaged
patches.xx.tar.bz2 tarballs, the order in which they are applied is
controlled by the series.conf file. There is a special
patches.addon.tar.bz2 and this is where you put patch.
Create a tarballlike this:
$ tar tf patches.addon.tar.bz2
where the series file contains this line:
And add it to your kernel-source package. If you need
to apply more
patches, simply list them all in the series file, in the order you
to apply them.
So far I have done the following -
1. created patches.addon/series file
# echo patches.addon/reiser4-for-2.6.34.patch > patches.addon/series
2. created patches.addon.tar.bz2
# tar -cvf patches.addon.tar patches.addon
# bzip2 -v patches.addon.tar
patches.addon.tar: 5.330:1, 1.501 bits/byte, 81.24% saved,
2406400 in, 451444 out.
How do i set up a project to link to the 2.6.34 kernel vanilla.
3. Have you a .spec file I could use to do the following items.
- unpack the vanilla 2.6.34 kernel
- apply the reiser4-for-2.6.34.patch to the vanilla kernel
- build the new reiser4 patched/enabled kernel
