Hello, I am looking to build my own kernel from 5.19 pve. I have a mac mini 8.1 and I have to apply patches in order to install drivers (eg fan control).
I made a request to T2linux who recommended me this:

You can derive the needed patches from the workflow.
Look at the lines github/workflows/build.yml#L143 down to github/workflows/build.yml#L160 for instruction on how to fetch and apply patches.

The SHA's can be found in build_params from the releases.

Also remember to set the correct configuration parameters. See .github/workflows/build.yml#L173 to .github/workflows/build.yml#L177 .

Alternatively, you could fork this repo and change the way the kernel sources are fetched (.github/workflows/build.yml#L141). If you do, you prob want to skip the step that copies in the kernel config from the official debian kernel.

I don't know where to start can someone help me?
