First off I'd like to say I wish You all had a nice Christmas time along with your beloved friends and family.
I have a Toshiba Satellite P105 SP921 which has a sound issue on SLED 10 and Ubuntu 6.10 (just works with acpi=off) and I've been trying to solve this since 10 days or so with no joy. However, during this long long research, I've found in some posts that using the latest prepatch kernel cuold solve some problems and that's what I've been trying to do.
So I've followed this tutorial and when trying to apply the patch it's giving me some errors and asks me things, I don't really understand. I'm not exactly a noob in linux but also I'm not a programmer or coder, just use it because I really like it over any other platform.
So, when I run "bzip2 -dc /usr/src/patch-2.6.20-rc2.bz2 | patch -p1 --dry-run
" in /usr/src/linux, I get
can't find file to patch at input line 5
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
|diff --git a/.gitignore b/.gitignore
|index 9eb4b77..060a71d 100644
File to patch:
linux:/usr/src # cd linux
linux:/usr/src/linux # bzip2 -dc /usr/src/patch-2.6.20-rc2.bz2 | patch -p1 --dry-run
patching file .gitignore
Hunk #1 FAILED at 42.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file .gitignore.rej
patching file CREDITS
Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected! Assume -R? [n]
and then I don't know what to answer in this point so I just give it <Ctrl>+C to abort.
I assume I followed everything as it's explained in the Howto. I'm using linux-2.6.19.tar.bz2
kernel and the patch-2.6.20-rc2.bz2
Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

EDIT: Sorry but I missed the correct forum, so please admin, be so kind to move it to the right place in case it applies. TIA
