Hi, I'm trying compiling 4.5.5 liquorix kernel and I'm having a lot of problems to patch the 4.5.5 version.
Suspiciously 4.5.4 and 4.5.5 versions have exactly the same size, and I'm wondering if it is the correct file.

Thanks in advance.

That patch is the right one. The 4.5.4 version contains the patches from the stable queue and thus seems similar.

However, if you diff the files, you can see what changed:

Remember, this patch applies only to the base version of the kernel, not anything else. Try patching Linux 4.5.0 with the file.

I had trouble patching this file: https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/linux-4.5.5.tar.xz
with this patch: https://liquorix.net/sources/4.5.5-1.patch.gz

I thought the patch version matched the kernel version. It is very strange have to take Linux 4.5.0 for the patch 4.5.5 O_O!
