    Kernel Version and RT patch version


    I am wondering the relationship between the kernel version and RT patch version
    - Latest stable version at kernel.org is "Linux-3.6.8"
    - Latest RT version at kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/3.6/is "patches-3.6.7-rt18"

    Do the version numbers have to match?
    If so, why isn't a "patches-3.6.8-rt18"

    Also in the same directory there is a "patch-3.6.7-rt18" What is the difference?

    Note: I am new so I hope this is the correct forum.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    I suspect that the patch is fine for the 3.6.8 kernel, but you might want to contact the distributions forums for a better answer. What distribution+version of Linux are you running? There are a number that could be using that kernel.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
