    Question Which patches are applied to 3.14.5 Kali kernel?

    Hi,

    We're trying to solve a bug that happens on a Kali Linux 3.14.5 kernel, but does not happen on a vanilla 3.14.5 kernel.

    I've downloaded the 3.14.5 kernel's source from Kali's repository. It indeed contain a patch file
    Code:
    linux-patch-3.14-rt.patch
    , but this patch is ~22,000 lines long, spanning 355 files....

    Is there a place where I can see the series of patches applied to Kali's kernel?

    We would like to trace a specific patch that might cause this problem

    Even better, is there a git repository where Kali's kernel is developed?

    But where is the kernel repository?

    I've searched for Linux and kernel, but found no relevant repositories.

    It might be in the live-build package ~ http://git.kali.org/gitweb/?p=packag....git;a=summary

    Thanks,

    I'll also be interested with the rational of changing the Debian kernel.

    Why would Kali need patches to the kernel?

    Which were included and why?

    Thanks,

    One of the main reason we patch the kernel is to allow for additional wireless injection support.
