1-wire and kernel patch howto


I'd like to use a 1-wire bus and find an article on koen's blog :

There is a patch : http://dominion.thruhere.net/koen/angstrom/beaglebone/beaglebone-w1.diff

My question is : How to apply this patch ?

I followed the instructions on page : http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/building-angstrom
But I have no idea how to use a patch on this distrib and don't find
documentation for helping me.

Can anyone help me or give a link for some documentation ?



There should be a article on the front page called "kernel workflow". I'm planning to include the w1 patch in the new beaglebone kernel anyway next month :slight_smile:

Is there any plan to include the DS2482 module as well? I have wired a
ds2482-100 to the i2c bus and can see it via OWFS. I'm curious to know
if that would make userspace programs easier since I am porting
digitemp which uses 1-wire switches, not just simple buses.

At this point I'm looking at the SBUS commands to access the device.
