How to obtain source packages of 4.15.0-x kernel?

Post by thomas.raines »

I just got the update for 4.15.0-24 kernel. I run a custom kernel though and I would much rather build the kernel myself. But I cannot find the patches or source code for it. Any one know where I might find it?

I thought my question was on topic with this thread being that it concerns source code for the 4.15.0-x kernel???

I have tried searching for it, and I have looked at the kernels that are available on kernel.org. I have found the base source, 4.15.0-original, but not any patches or the code for 4.15.0-24.

Since the kernels at kernel.org don't have the distro specific patches used by Ubuntu etc AFAIK I'd try the 1st answer here:
