I have a clean install of Ubuntu Feisty which is (unfortunately) version 2.6.20 of the kernel. I downloaded the 126.96.36.199 kernel source, unpacked it to /usr/src/, downloaded the patch-ovz003.2-combined.gz patch, and, based on the notes on the Debian Wiki page here, tried to run (from /usr/src/linux-188.8.131.52)
sudo gzip -dc /home/patrick/Desktop/patch-ovz003.2-combined.gz | patch -p1
patching file COPYING.SWsoft
patch: **** Can't rename file /tmp/po4AI3EK to COPYING.SWsoft : Permission denied
Not sure what this is about? Is the patch the correct one to use? Maybe some other patch option to apply?
Sorry, am a newbie to all this. Theoretically I could try the .18 kernel, but as I am trying to get this all to work on a new Mac, I am trying to stick with a kernel which appears to run most of what I need as far as the hardware is concerned.
