How to Kernel Patch in Linuxmint? This is my main question.
I need some help from you guys, and I know this forum has nothing to do with the topic Im asking help for.
I just build a new machine, using Gigabyte B550 Aorus PRO AC motherboard, and I wanted to use a free RGB app to control LEDs on this board. It's called, OpenRGB.
One of the requirement is to patch the kernel, so it can control the RGB RAM in my mobo.
I tried hard following the "kernel patch" procedure, but no success - I think. Im not really sure if I patched the kernel successfully
The Kernel Patch Guide Im Following:

This is the part where I'm at lost:
I'm not really sure what the author is talking about, he just said "config-file", is he actually telling about the files like (/boot) in my Linuxmint 20 instance:5. Copy your existing configuration. I don't remember the exact filename of the existing config but it's in /boot. Use tab-complete or a file browser to get the file name and replace "config-file" with this name below.
Are those the config file the author talks about?
Also, in the guide, the part -
Code: Select all
sudo i2cdetect -l
How do I choose the right linux kernel repo? What branch or tag to checkout, so it would match my current installed one on my Linuxmint 20 machine?
Is there anyone here able to help? or had personal experience using the app on Linuxmint 20?
