== Kernel ==
+
This section includes important information concerning the kernel in Fedora 13.
+
 
+
=== Version ===
+
Fedora may include additional patches to the kernel for improvements, bug fixes, or additional features. For this reason, the Fedora kernel may not be line-for-line equivalent to the so-called vanilla kernel from the kernel.org web site at http://www.kernel.org.
+
 
+
To obtain a list of these patches, download the source RPM package and run the following command:
+
 
+
rpm -qpl kernel-<version>.src.rpm
+
 
+
=== Changelog ===
+
To retrieve a log of changes to the package, run the following command:
+
 
+
rpm -q --changelog kernel-<version>
+
 
+
Note that this list has entries about upstream kernel changes applied to the package as well as Fedora-specific enhancements such as bug fixes and enhancements not yet available in the upstream kernel. A detailed summary of changes in each upstream version is at http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-<version>, e.g. the changelog for kernel 2.6.33 is at http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.33 .
+
 
+
If you need user friendly documentation about new features in a major upstream kernel release, refer to http://wiki.kernelnewbies.org/LinuxChanges .
+
 
+
A complete history of changes to the kernel is available from http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=summary .
+
 
+
Customizations made for the Fedora version are available from http://cvs.fedoraproject.org.
+
 
+
=== Preparing for Kernel Development ===
+
Fedora 13 does not include the ''kernel-source'' package provided by older versions, since only the ''kernel-devel'' package is required now to build external modules.
+
 
+
{{Admon/note | Custom Kernel Building | For information on kernel development and working with custom kernels, refer to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Building_a_custom_kernel.}}
+
 
+
=== Reporting Bugs ===
+
Refer to http://kernel.org/pub/linux/docs/lkml/reporting-bugs.html for information on reporting bugs in the Linux kernel. You may also use http://bugzilla.redhat.com for reporting bugs that are specific to Fedora.
