=== Version ===
+
{{Docs_beat_closed}}
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

If you need a user friendly version of the changelog, refer to http://wiki.kernelnewbies.org/LinuxChanges. A short and full diff of the kernel is available from http://kernel.org/git. The Fedora version kernel is based on the Linus tree.

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.
