NAMEketchup - Utility to update the kernel source
SYNOPSISketchup [options] <ver>
DESCRIPTIONThis tool synchronises a local kernel tree with a desired kernel version and patch set from a kernel.org mirror. The default requires a GPG key on your keyring, to verify the identity of the patches and source archives. Entire kernel images are not downloaded unless necessary, so bandwidth is saved. Patches are applied and removed as necessary to attain the requested version.
OPTIONS-a --archive (~/.ketchup) cache directory -d --directory (.) directory to update -f --full-tarball if unpacking a tarball, download the latest -g --gpg-path (/usr/bin/gpg) path for GnuPG -G --no-gpg disable GPG signature verification -k --kernel-url (//www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel) base url for kernel.org mirror -l --list-trees list supported trees -m --show-makefile output version in makefile <arg> -n --dry-run don't download or apply patches -p --show-previous output version previous to <arg> -q --quiet reduce output -r --rename-directory rename updated directory to linux-<v> -s --show-latest output the latest version of <arg> -u --show-url output URL for <arg> -w --wget (/usr/bin/wget) command to use for wget
CONFIGURATIONKetchup will read files named .ketchuprc in $HOME and in the target kernel directory, with the kernel directory taking precedence. A .ketchuprc file uses the Python syntax and may set the following variables: default_tree The default_tree option specifies the kernel version to work with if one is not given on the command line. precommand The precommand option specifies a command to run before synchronising the kernel tree to the required version. postcommand The postcommand option specifies a command to run after synchronising the kernel tree to the required version.
